Personalized Care Management for Seniors in Israel
As a parent or senior loved one ages, it can be overwhelming to address their changing health care and day-to-day needs, especially in times of crisis or if you live far away. At B’Lev Shalem, our Care Managers ensure that seniors in Israel receive all the help and support they need, relieving family members of stress and worry. Short-term or long-term, we’ll be by your side every step of the way.
Ongoing Care Management
Caregiving is a marathon. To succeed, you need a professional plan and ongoing support to follow it. Our Care Managers are creative problem-solvers and expert care-navigators; we know how to anticipate and address the challenges that lay ahead. Whether you need someone “on the ground” in Israel or just want the very best for your parents, you can count on us.
When a crisis hits, things happen fast. Suddenly you need to navigate the medical system, coordinate a hospital discharge, battle Bituach Leumi or find the best home care. You can count on our compassionate Care Managers to address you needs right away, set up a plan to move forward, and be there for you as long as you need.
Aliyah & Returning Citizens Support
When an elderly loved one is making Aliyah, careful planning is key to navigating a complex system of medical care, home care and benefits. We can help. Our senior Aliyah Specialist will provide you with personalized guidance on pre-move preparations, transitioning to Israel and more.
Planning for Aging
Most people desire to age in place, staying in their own home and community as long as possible. Making informed decisions ahead of time will give you greater control over your long-term independence and quality of life. It will also help your loved ones support you the way YOU want. It can be hard to get started, but we’re here to help.
When To Call A Professional Care Manager
You live too far away to provide essential “hands on” help.
There is a crisis that requires fast, knowledge-based decision-making.
Your parent refuses help, and you're concerned about his or her safety and well-being.
The care situation is complex such as Alzheimer’s, dementia or Parkinson’s disease.
Family members can’t agree, creating an obstacle for providing meaningful care.
You are overwhelmed trying to balance the needs of your family, your parents and your career.
Navigating the Israeli system is difficult because you don’t speak Hebrew.
