Hawaii 2050 Sustainability Plan
Provide access to long-term care and elderly housing.
(Goal 4 Strategic Action 1)
Why this matters:
Where we are now:
- The elderly population is growing more quickly than our current capacity to house and care for them.
2020 Suggested Benchmark:
- According to the Hawai‘i Health Information Corporation, Hawai'i's long-term bed rate of 24 beds per 1,000 residents aged 65 and older is about one-half that of the U.S. rate of 43 beds per 1000.

- Upward movement towards 40 beds per 1,000 residents aged 65 and older is desired. These amounts were suggested by long-term care specialists in the field.
