AARP & Sky Blossom: The Kapanui Family

Wednesday, Apr 7, 2021
From 7pm to 8pm Hawaii Time


Sky Blossom is a raw, candid look at the 24.5 million teens and twenty-somethings caring for a veteran parent or grandparent. Caring for family with tough medical conditions, they stay at home doing things often seen only in hospitals.  They are cheerleaders, work part time, and go to college — but also live double lives — quietly growing up as America’s next greatest generation. 

In tonight's feature film, we meet the Kapanui Family. The Hawaiian word kuleana (responsibility) defines Kaleo and Kamaile’s work as primary caregivers for grandpa.  There are no parents to care for Bobby.  The grandkids are it. And for now, despite having a scholarship, college isn’t it. Moving in with Bobby is their dorm life. This event is live only and a recording will not be available after the event concludes
