Meet Emelyn Kim

With Over 20 Years of Elder Care Experience!

Aloha! As the owner of Elder Care 808. I am a dedicated advocate for Hawaii’s kupuna. With
more than 20 years of professional experience in elder care, I believe I fill a critical need for
support and counseling services for families caring for aging loved ones, as well as kupuna who
are preparing for retirement. I have a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from the University of Hawaii and went to San Francisco State University to earn my Master of Science degree in Gerontological Counseling. After returning to Oahu in 2007, I established Elder Care 808 to provide comprehensive support and counseling for caregivers and families. I like to say that my approach is rooted and
influenced by my traditional Japanese upbringing, which includes a strong family legacy of
caregiving and teaching.

I draw inspiration from the bonsai tree, which in Asian cultures, represents balance, harmony
and, most importantly, patience. Taking years of training and care, in order to flourish, bonsai
trees require a delicate balance of sunlight, water and guidance. In the same way, I believe that
families can be gently guided to overcome difficulties and to find balance between caring for
their loved ones, as well as themselves.
