b'E O l a K o aIn Hawaiian culture, E Ola Koa (live like a koa tree) is used as a greeting to wish someone a long and healthy life, like that of the koa. It was only natural that we adopt this greeting at Koa Ridge to welcome residents and guests to the community.The word ola means life, health, well-being, and essential living. Quality of life is important to us in Hawaii, from the environment and energy with which we surround ourselves to the health and well-being of our body, mind, and spirit. To live our best life is to keep all three in harmony. E Ola Koa refers to the balanced, abundant, and healthy life that Koa Ridge offers its residents.'
