Brandi Hori-Moises is the executive director at Waimea Care Center and is a licensed nursing home administrator as well as a registered nurse, who spends her days coordinating care for kupuna on the West Side.
She was nominated as a Kaua‘i Hometown Hero by her mother-in-law, Marlene Moises of Lawai, who made the move because she was inspired by Hori-Moises’s dedication not only to her job, but to her community — especially during this time of COVID-19 pandemic.
Hori-Moises has gone to great lengths to make sure those under her care are safe, and feel loved and supported in a time when they’re being cut off from their usual socialization with family and friends. Waimea Care Center, like the other entities under Regency Pacific Management, has stopped allowing all visitations and has added social distancing and other protocols to dining and other activities. Many activities for residents have been canceled.
