Yad Sarah launches campaign to implement home hospital program.. THE JERUSALEM POST REPORTS -.. Voluntary organization has expanded its medical-equipment loan service with the purchase of NIS 17 million worth of home equipment.. BY.. Judy Siegel-Itzkovich.. The voluntary organization Yad Sarah has expanded its medical-equipment loan service with the purchase of NIS 17 million worth of home-hospitalization equipment including beds, nursing chairs, oxygen distillers and cranes to lift patients out of beds to help 4,000 patients stay at home instead of being hospitalized.. In addition, Yad Sarah president (and founder) Uri Lupolianski announced at a Monday press conference in its Jerusalem headquarters that telemedicine will be used to connect medical staffers in hospitals to patients and their caregivers at home.. This, he said, will create a home hospital larger than any medical center in the country.. Called HousePital, the program is aimed at reducing hospital stays so that recovery and rehabilitation can be shortened and in some cases, made unnecessary.. But when interviewed, Lupolianski conceded that no formal talks have been held on the subject with the Health Ministry, the four public health funds or hospitals.. In addition, people who live in the periphery will be less likely to benefit from such services, as there are no hospitals nearby that could send staffers quickly or be able to bring in emergencies, without putting them through a long ambulance ride.. Lupolianski told The Jerusalem Post that due to a major turnover of senior officials in the Health Ministry and health funds in recent months, as well as the urgent polio-vaccination campaign, there has been no opportunity yet to discuss HousePital.. The former mayor, who established the organization 36 years ago by lending nebulizers to neighbors whose children suffered from croup and would otherwise have to be hospitalized, said that the hospitalization crisis is worsening every year, and thousands of patients die annually from nosocomial (in-hospital) infections.. Hospitalization units at home allow hospitalization in a healthy and supportive environment.. Three years ago, we launched the purchase of such units, and now I can announce that we have completed the acquisition of over 4,000.. Yad Sarah already has seven vans that can transfer hospital equipment to patients homes, he said.. Some 7,000 patients used the service last year.. The equipment is stored in Jerusalem, Haifa, Beersheba and Karmiel and can be moved anywhere.. The whole world is struggling with a shortage of beds and hospitalization funding, but Israel due to its high level of health care and computerization and relatively short distances has an advantage over other countries, he said.. A senior expert in hospital administration who preferred to remain anonymous told the Post that he was unaware of any discussions of home hospitalization by the ministry or the health funds, even though in principle it s an excellent idea.. But it must be economically viable [for the health funds].. If patients are sent home early for home care, their beds will be filled by other patients and more money will be spent.. Only if some hospital departments are closed and medical staffers transferred to home care will it be an economical project.. Other hospitalization experts noted that patients in the center of the country will benefit the most as hospitals are nearby, but when they are far away and do not have adequate support staff for the units, it will be problematic.. Another problem, they said, is that if family members who work (and don t have medical expertise) are unable to remain with the patient at home, they will have to be replaced by large numbers of trained and adequately prepared caregivers.. A whole coordinated system has to be put into place to make hospitalization at home safe and effective.. The project was endorsed by Dr.. Eyran Halpern, director- general of the Rabin Medical Center in Petah Tikva, who said at the press conference that Israel s health system was effective and good despite inadequate resources, but that it must find solutions to the increasing crowding in public hospitals.. The Yad Sarah president said it envisions the connection of homes with telemedicine equipment that can monitor patients blood pressure, temperature, sugar level and other information and that hospital call centers will be able to take action.. If a patient has already been hospitalized in a department, if he needs to be re-hospitalized, he would not be taken to an emergency department that knows nothing of him but directly to the medical team that previously treated him, said Lupolianski.. He called on the leaders of the health system, including the health minister, hospital directors-general and health fund officials to work together and reach an agreement to institute a large HousePital system together with Yad Sarah.. The event was also attended by former TV star Eyal Peled, who for years hosted the TV show World Tour and suffered a stroke at a young age five years ago and is disabled.. He volunteered to star in a short video to promote fundraising for Yad Sarah s HousePital Project.. Retires from volunteering in her 100.. th.. year:.. Dr.. Marjorie Kenyon Yad Sarah s oldest volunteer says It s Time.. In the 100.. year of her life and after nine years of volunteering at Yad Sarah, Dr.. Marjorie Kenyon has decided that the time has come to retire from her voluntary work at the organization.. I m winding up an era only because I believe there is less need for my service, says the elderly pediatrician and family physician, but immediately adds, I m not completely leaving, I ll continue to help anyone who needs me.. Beginning in 2008 Dr.. Kenyon has been reporting for duty once a week in the small offices of Da at, Yad Sarah s medical information center at Yad Sarah House in Jerusalem.. My work has been to search and summarize diseases, medications, treatments and medical research on the internet, she explains about her job in the service that supplies answers to questions sent by patients from around the world requesting information about diseases, genetic problems, medications, treatments and organ transplants.. This is an important service that really helps people, and so it gave me great satisfaction.. Kenyon s long period of voluntary service is not unusual at Yad Sarah, where she has been one of some 6,000 volunteers.. Volunteering is a way of life for her, as she puts it.. When she retired from her medical career 30 years ago and came to live in Israel, she helped (as a volunteer) to establish the Women s Health Center in Jerusalem, took care of women at the Tipat Halav public health stations, and simultaneously wandered among various medical clinics all around Jerusalem with the aim of raising women s awareness of their bodies and of periodic checkups they should have.. Ever since I became a doctor it has been important to me to help sick people, and so the continuation into volunteering was natural for me, she explains.. She was born in London in 1914, just months before the start of the First World War, and got her MD in 1936 before the invention of antibiotics as she always points out.. She worked as a physician in London and Manchester during World War Two: The Germans were bombarding regularly and there were blackouts.. The times were hard but the people were strong, she recalls.. She immigrated to Israel in 1987 and continued volunteering in the field of medicine.. Kenyon has two children, seven grandchildren and 14 great-grandchildren.. I always tell them that you must try to give, because that is what gives meaning to life, she concludes.. photo by Sasson Tiram.. Rina Brings Creativity to the Yad Sarah Rehabilitation Center.. Yad Sarah website volunteer, Eli Cohen, invites us to meet Rina Kramer, who presides over the artistic activities in the Beit Yad Sarah Rehabilitation Center.. The patients choose their craft - sculpture, painting, weaving, jewelry, or embroidery -- Rina provides skill and guidance.. When Rina Kramer retired after years of creativity as an art teacher at the School for the Deaf, she had no intention of stopping her work for a moment.. She wished to continue sharing her knowledge, in an effort to improve the quality of life for those with difficulty in functioning.. Every Thursday, Rina comes to the Yad Sarah Rehabilitation Center in Jerusalem, along with a large group of patients who have become her loyal and very satisfied students.. She runs craft and creative activities for the art class.. Together with a team of volunteers to aid her, Rina guides the patients in a variety of creative activities: jewelry, embroidery, weaving, and polymer clay sculpture.. Rina first visited the Rehabilitation Center in Yad Sarah after a chance meeting with Irit Nahaloni, Rehabilitation Center Director, at a mutual event.. Irit told Rina about the need for an art teacher at the Rehabilitation Center.. Rina did not hesitate for a moment and quickly arrived.. For the past eleven years, Rina has been with us at the Rehabilitation Center.. She comes happily and returns home with the joy and satisfaction of having empowered her patients.. Rina says that the choice of the creative activity is up to the patient.. Once the decision has been made, the patient receives all the materials and tools he or she needs to complete the project and this is determined according to the individual ability level.. Her guidance does not end there.. Rina and her volunteers constantly move between the creative participants, supporting them with a good word, offering professional advice, and doing everything they can to ensure that the finished product will be worthy of bringing pride to its creator.. We all wish dear Rina Kramer many more wonderful years of enriching the Rehabilitation Center with the joy of artistic creation under her skilled guidance.. For Shaul everyone.. is.. VIP.. Namely Very Important People.. Shaul likes to help and drives people kindly and safely * Eli Cohen reporter of Yad Sarah is reporting from a car, which is practically a limousine.. Shaul Pasternack has been sitting behind the wheel of Yad Sarah s car for 21 years, kindly and safely driving people in need to their destination.. Shaul used to work for the Ministry of Education before he retired.. He taught Judaism for 35 years.. He was always able to find one day in a week to volunteer as a driver, and he obviously volunteered even more after his retirement.. He has become very experienced in driving low functioning people from all ages and all levels, even very important people.. One drive he remembers very clearly is the day he drove the late President Ezer Weizman from Meir Hospital to his house in Caesarea.. But you don t have to be a president, to be driven by Shaul like a king or a queen.. When Shaul assists people to get out of the car and move on a wheelchair to their destination, he does that with a smile on his face and with honest kindness, so that everyone is a king or a queen.. When Shaul is not driving, he takes care of the car in the parking lot of the rehabilitation centre: he oils the grooves and makes sure that the hydraulic lift is in perfect order.. I wish for shaul many more years of driving with good health and joy.. I am allowing myself to thank Shaul on behalf of all his passengers, and also on behalf of Margalit Cohen, who is in the photo.. F.. or Shaul we are all VIP, celebrities, and first of all human beings whom he likes to serve so well.. With Yad Sarah all the way to the polling place.. When there is a celebration of democracy the elderly did not give up on their right to vote * Haim Shibi, director of communications at Yad Sarah, with the driver of the specially equipped van, Eyal Melamed, who drove wheelchair-bound disabled persons to the polling place * Photograph: After voting.. The Yad Sarah Organization helps disabled persons reach the polling place.. Disabled people confined to wheelchairs who need a ride to the polling places can call telephone 1-800-700-501.. The ride is subsidized by the organization, and costs NIS25.. The elderly Mazal Siboni sat in her wheelchair at the entrance of the polling place in the.. Ahuzat Beit Hakerem.. assisted-living residence in Ramat Beit Hakerem when IDF Radio broadcast the announcement again.. She was already there, waiting for her turn to vote, after being brought to the polling place by the specially equipped van of Yad Sarah.. For a minute it seemed as if she had fallen into a deep sleep in her chair until she suddenly raised her head and smiled a very mischievous and alert smile that would not have shamed a 16-year-old girl: I shouldn t vote? G-d forbid! It is my right to vote.. The van driver, Eyal Melamed, waited patiently for her to finish voting at the polling place that was packed with the elderly, most of them in wheelchairs and some of them using walkers.. After that, he wheeled Mazal Sibuni delicately and with great care through the crowded hallways of the senior-citizen residence back to the van that was parked close to the polling place and helped her board the vehicle.. Mazal did not stop smiling: I voted.. Of course I voted.. Thank you for bringing me here.. Noon.. at the integrated telephone service center of Yad Sarah, the incoming phone calls reached the number 259.. Yisrael Ohayon, Hezi Yitzhaki, and the other operators did their best to keep up with the high volume of calls.. The staff demonstrated quiet efficiency in answering the incoming calls and throughout all stages of the transport to the polling place.. Heavy Snow in Jerusalem?.. Jacques Meir, an 89-year-old Yad Sarah volunteer who lends out medical equipment, showed up for duty as usual.. The Jerusalem Post reports HERE.. At the playground: Everyone is a little.. light.. Through the cre during the holiday of lights, each child in Beit Helena.. becomes a hero.. Jeannie Gadish Gadish, the manager of the playground, gave us an enlightened report.. Through the.. active and special enforcing way of the playground,.. The playground works to enforce special needs children and to strengthen family ties by creating mutual experience though combined activity.. The Hanukkah party at Beit Helena playground included giving each child a golden shield inscribed with the statement I am a hero of Beit Helena playground.. In the playground, like any playground, there was a creative activity: the children created a reflection of a candle, while the parents wrote a story about freedom and independence requested by their child, and the candles were then decorated together.. The works of art were later shown to the audience, while the stories written were read to great applause.. This however did not seal the fun of the event.. Gadish: We later went to the motor room for games with light.. Each child covered 4 fingers of their hand with finger lamps.. The light they created in the darkness excited them tremendously.. They were asked to light a different colored lamp each time and learned how the light grows using distance.. We created circles and tried to capture each others light.. We were all driven into the game together.. We finished with the words:.. Everyone is a small light, but together we are a mighty light.. War in the South.. :.. Yad Sarah Branches Act to give More.. Yad Sarah set up a special center to deal with requests for help from residents of the south and has boosted its medical equipment lending centers in Beersheba, Dimona, Yevul, Nehora, Arad, Kiryat Gat and Kiryat Malachi.. Its branches in Netivot and Sderot are temporarily closed because they are not fortified.. Yad Sarah will respond at its number.. *6444.. It is almost a tradition built into the culture of the organization: Yad Sarah is used to.. adjust its services to the war situation in cities and settlements in the line of fire.. Despite.. difficult conditions, volunteers have decided to continue activities in these branches.. TELEPHONE SUPPORT AND SOLIDARITY.. Our Emergency Center volunteers headed by Arie Kahan and Shirin Malol in Jerusalem are contacting subscribers in the south to inquire.. about their health and to assure them that people are available to help them in emergencies.. Volunteers also inform them of emergency procedures.. photo above- Aviahi Amosi head of Shderot branch.. At the same time, Yad Sarah volunteers in the North and Center of the country are contacting volunteers in the South to offer support, help and hospitality.. Similar solidarity was demonstrated during each and every war north and south- and significantly raised the morale of the Yad Sarah volunteers under fire.. Branches and Services manager Moshe Cohen.. follows the tradition of pro active response to the situation:.. * To work in coordination with the Home Front Command, and the local social services with the aim of continuing to offer Yad Sarah s services to all the people in the South using our main branch in Be er Sheva.. as headquarters.. and to help them as much as possible.. * To.. strengthen the people in the South in general, and the volunteers of Yad Sarah in particular, who continue to serve the citizens despite the difficult situation.. * To expand.. services wherever we can, at the request of the people calling for help.. the Home Front Command and the Social Services Departments.. OUR ON LINE NEWSPAPER- HERE.. Friends of.. : Inside Yad Sarah - Fall 2012.. FROM OUR FRIENDS IN THE USA.. CLICK HERE.. In Praise of the Silent Dedicated Work.. My brethren of Yad Sarah s family, and Yad Sarah s loyal friends,.. For over 20 years, and even after reaching 90, volunteer Haim Fischer used to arrive to the Electro Mechanical Repairs center at Yad Sarah, situated in Yad Sarah s house in Jerusalem, and repair medical rehabilitative equipment.. He did that silently, with excellent accuracy, and minded every little detail in his work.. His way of life enchanted the other volunteers, even those who came from as far as Scandinavia.. Haim r.. i.. p.. was one of thousands of volunteers, which enabled Yad Sarah to provide immediate and essential assistance to some half a million Israelis every year, in around 100 branches of Yad Sarah, distributed all over Israel.. When we do the aftermath of the ending year, we go back to that silent, caring, humanitarian efficiency.. This is the essence of existence of the Jewish nation: Israelis are compassionate, modest and full of charity.. This is also the key to grow bigger, and the key to the constant trust which Yad Sarah gains from the public, as yearly surveys show.. We are ever ready to do our work silently, without loud declarations.. Without over bureaucracy imposed on the person who is in need, without demanding piles of documents to be presented, and without medical qualify-committees.. We are here all year round to do our work in a way that a poor man will get the same treatment as a rich man.. A man who is in need, and his family, will be immediately attended and furnished with the right rehabilitative equipment.. This equipment will be chosen with the best possible professional knowledge.. We will arrive to the home-restricted people, if they are unable to arrive to us.. We will come to make them happy.. to tell the story of their lives.. Yes, we upgrade our technological means every year.. We have renewed our distress-call-centre, in a way that enables thousands of elderly and sick people to connect to a team which will listen to them and help them, from anywhere, at any time always connected.. But the key to success, and to reliable bounding with the entire Israeli community has been,  ...   and recuperate while being surrounded by family.. We will continue to offer this aid to everyone, anywhere - and from the bottom of our hearts.. The service will continue to be optimal, reliable and available.. Happy Independence Day and a healthy summer!.. Uri Lupolianski.. Yad Sarah s.. Geriatric Dental Clinic:.. The Human- professional touch.. Yad Sarah s Geriatric Dental Clinic turned out to be the answer to the.. prayers of those senior citizens who can not eat with what was left of their teeth.. and can not afford to pay for dental care.. Yad Sarah s Geriatric Dental Clinic comprises some of the kindest and most meticulous professionals they have encountered inside or outside.. Israel.. A feisty, no-nonsense Batya Greenberg, for example, pays tribute to the volunteer senior doctor at the Clinic who treated her with golden hands for a number of denture problems.. Batya s dentist still stays in touch with her as a personal friend, visiting her once a week at her residence in the Bukharin neighbourhood of.. David Levinger, a Shoah survivor from.. Slovakia.. , says that the treatment he received from Clinic staff was hamon nechmad [super nice], even unforgettable.. Tovah Stein, an 8th generation Israeli, goes so far as to call her experience.. mei-eyn Olam Habah.. [like a taste of the World to Come].. (Photo left- Dr.. Sarit Palmon - the director and guiding hand behaind the speical dental team).. More Here.. Aharon Mayne.. Never.. Alone.. Before they call,.. I will answer;and while they are yet speaking,.. I will hear.. (Isaiah, 65:24).. As we entered a very special and important room in Yad Sarah, this.. verse in the Book of Isaiah.. caught our eyes as it was boldly written across the top of the wall.. The Emergency Alarm Response Centre is a room where many volunteers work as operators 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.. This is a great service which enables the elderly, disabled and anyone in need who is living alone to feel secure.. A kind volunteer took the time to explain to us the inner workings of the Emergency Alarm Response Centre.. The way this works is that each client has a wristband with a two-way transmitter connecting him/ her to a Yad Sarah volunteer with the touch of a button.. This immediately activates a connection to this room where all the client s personal information appears on the computer screen.. The details include the client s name, adress, medical information, languages spoken, relative s contact information.. As well it informs the operators which neighbours have keys, the client s doctor, and the nearest medical centre, etc.. This system is not exclusively used for medical emergencies but it is also available for those who need someone to talk to for encouragement, support, and peace of mind.. It also enables the client s relatives to feel more secure and at ease with leaving their loved ones alone as well as giving the clients themselves a greater sense of independance.. After learning about this incredible service that Yad Sarah provides we truly recognized why this verse was chosen to be displayed in this particular room.. This Passuk fully captures the tremendous chessed performed within these walls.. Until next time, Ofra Lipson Margalit Bernstein The Canadian Team (In the picture above:)).. The Canadian Team.. by Margalit Bernstein Ofra Lipson.. Seeing is believing.. Its a phrase we have heard and experienced so many times.. but not to this extent.. We have heard so much about the volunteering that takes.. place in Israel, and now we were given the opportunity to become a part of it.. We walked into the beautiful,.. Jerusalem-stone building proudly bearing the name.. Immediately we were greeted with a friendly, Shalom! Mah.. Nishmah? by a smiling security guard as we entered.. As we walked down the.. hallway to the bank of elevators an impressive sign enlisting all of the.. numerous services Yad Sarah provides stood before us.. After running our eyes.. over the many options we finally rested on the Volunteer Office.. After.. hearing countless positive reports about this wonderful organization we finally.. were registering as volunteers in the hopes of contributing in our small way.. Growing up in Toronto, Canada, we were exposed to various fundraisers for Yad.. Sarah.. Every year, our school organizes a mother-daughter event donating all.. proceeds to a charity in Israel.. One such organization that really struck us.. was Yad Sarah.. We were shown a DVD of the various services this organization.. conducts.. However, it was hard to imagine how so much could be achieved by a.. team of volunteers.. This charity operates without ongoing government funding.. and is financed almost completely by generous donors.. A couple years later we.. participated in an evening of entertainment organized by the Canadian Friends.. of Yad Sarah.. These fundraisers raised our awareness of the incredible help.. provided to Israelis struggling with medical challenges.. When we decided to.. spend this year studying in Israel, we knew that it would be a privilege and.. opportunity of a lifetime to get involved with Yad Sarah.. On our first visit to Yad Sarah s headquarters we met with various volunteers.. who contribute an unimaginable amount of their time and skills to make this.. organization what it is.. We witnessed so many different services offered such.. as the Golden Garden Coffee Shop, the Karten Rahabilitative Computer Center,.. and an art therapy workshop taking place which was just a small sample of the.. immense care that is provided.. We look forward to our next visit as we continue.. discovering the generosity that takes place at Yad Sarah every day.. (photo: doing good work.. volunteers at Yad Sarah).. Until next time,..

Yad Sarah Offers an Additional Service for Holocaust Survivors.. Yad Sarah is expanding its range of unique services to Holocaust survivors.. A generous contribution from.. the fund in memory of Holocaust survivors will enable Yad Sarah s professional staff to offer more survivors the following services:.. Subsidized dental care is offered, provided at the geriatric dental clinic in Beit Yad Sarah in Jerusalem, and as part of treatment for the homebound in the seven Yad Sarah branches (Jerusalem, Be er Sheva, Ashdod, Modi in, Kfar Saba, Haifa and Kiryat Motzkin).. In photo - Dr.. Sarit Palmon, Clinic Director, to the right, and left, Rinat Sharoni, Clinic Reception Manager.. The clinic for seniors provides dental care to the elderly and specializes in the unique problems of the older population, along with routine dental care.. It is possible to receive a variety of dental treatments in the clinic including: preventive care (dental hygienist), dental restoration and prosthodontics, including dental implants when needed.. Treatment is provided by volunteer dentists, assisted by experts in prosthodontics, surgery and periodontics.. In the past year there were approximately 10, 200 visits to the clinic including the mobile clinics.. About 30 percent of applicants were Holocaust survivors - and the goal is to broaden and deepen their treatment.. A subsidized fee is required for this service.. There is no responsible body in this country for providing dental care to Holocaust survivors.. Many of the survivors suffer from economic difficulties and cannot afford the necessary treatments.. Consequently, they lose their dignity, withdraw into themselves and have difficulty talking or eating.. The significant contribution from the fund in memory of Holocaust survivors allows us to provide services to Holocaust survivors, to whom we owe a great moral debt, says Rivka Feuchtwanger, Public Relations Director at Yad Sarah..

Voluntary organization reports a three-fold increase in the borrowing of medical equipment for home use during the upcoming holidays.. Yad Sarah reported on Thursday a three-fold increase in the borrowing of medical equipment for home use during the upcoming holidays.. The voluntary organization s central storehouse has been transferring needed equipment to its more than 100 branches, with wheelchairs the most popular as families invite elderly relatives from old age homes and other institutions to their homes for the Pessah Seder.. Other items much in demand that are being lent out are thousands of oxygen canisters, walkers, hospital beds and pulleys to help people out of bed; all of these are worth hundreds of thousands of shekels, all purchased with donations.. As Pessah is the major holiday when families want to be together, the period is the most hectic for Yad Sarah.. The number of reservations for the 40 Nechonit vans to transport the disabled in wheelchairs around has been large.. Meanwhile, Yad Sarah is distributing via its website (.. yadsarah.. il.. ) a special Haggada for the visually impaired, printed in large letters.. The 67-page book was produced by Da at, the Center for Jewish Studies of the Herzog College.. Dozens of Yad Sarah branches will be open on the eve of Pessah, on Monday, and during the intermediate days of the holiday..

For the first time in its 35- year history, the Yad Sarah organization has decided to hold a national fund-raising campaign due to increased demands for its services and reduced donations.. Organization founder and chairman (and former Jerusalem mayor) Uri Lupolianski reluctantly made the decision after opposing it for years on the grounds that everybody knows what Yad Sarah is and does and knows where to contribute.. MORE HERE.. The Grand Opening in Beersheba.. The fundraising event for the new Yad Sarah in Beersheba was a huge success - another step forward towards beginning operations in the new regional center which will include the entire spectrum of services to be available to residents of the South.. About 200 leaders of major business corporations in the South came to the opening night fund-raiser.. Many of them gave generous donations and offered assistance to help run the services in the new center.. Most of the attention was focused on the auction, skillfully run by actor Zvika Hadar, who also volunteered to moderate the evening.. The first Israeli Ambassador to the United Kingdom, Eliyahu Eilat, donated a cigar given to him by British Prime Minister Winston Churchill, which was sold to the bromine company employees for 10,000..

On our most recent visit to the Yad Sarah headquarters, we were curious as to what other incredible discoveries we could possibly encounter..

A Message From Our Friends In NYC-.. Friends of Yad Sarah has a new website:.. Safe Wheels.. our new video on how to use a wheelchair correctly.. by Deborah Roitman.. Here are some notes we have recently received from viewers:.. I really appreciated the video when I recently had to care for my mother who was wheelchair-bound.. It was only for a few weeks that she could not walk and needed the wheelchair, when she was so very sick, but still.. Thank you so much for the information.. It is a service that is so necessary for so many people.. A job well done!.. I am confident that this video will be helpful to many people.. These are some of the early reactions to the video Safe Wheels which is the brainchild of occupational therapists Shani Rosenfeld (the head of the Exhibition and.. Guidance.. at Yad Sarah) and Toby Koren (the founder of the Center for Road Safety at the.. Alyn.. Hospital.. in.. ).. Yad Sarah and.. are comparable in that both institutions are at the interface when thousands of new drivers are confronted for the first-time with a wheelchair upon which they will need to rely but for which they have not been sufficiently trained to use safely.. Staff at Yad Sarah and at the.. often feels that patients and their caretakers alike put themselves at risk when they are unaware of the basics of handling a wheelchair correctly.. Over the years, many professional reports were written of the experience that had amassed, but only recently did this desire to promote an educational tool develop into something practical.. Dekel Eisenberg, at the time a student at the.. Musrara.. College.. , approached the Public Relations department at Yad Sarah and volunteered to make a film on the topic of the safe use of wheelchairs.. The challenges were considerable in transforming pages of thoughts into a user-friendly medium that would nonetheless remain true to its professional purpose.. The choice was to use actors who present the difficulties faced by a caretaker and a patient as they come to deal with a wheelchair, a reality, albeit transient, with which they have had no prior experience.. The main points that are dealt with in the video are the proper use of the wheelchair by the patient, getting a wheelchair in and out of the car, and safe manipulation by the caretaker of a patient in a wheelchair outdoors, because these are the issues that are critical for the safety of a patient who is wheelchair-bound.. It is the hope of the entire team at Yad Sarah that this video will be helpful to private individuals and their concerned significant others, but also be an educational tool for nursing services including students in the helping professions, professional working with patients after orthopedic surgeries, and many others.. Safe Wheels is user-friendly, short, and has very c.. r instructions that are easy to remember and easy to follow.. The objective is to add a measure of safety to a practical situation that thousands are confronted with annually and for which they are not sufficiently prepared..

Toy library and enrichment center for special children and their families.. Caring for seriously ill family members bedridden at home is a difficult task with no respite.. The hours are long seven days a week, 24 hours a day.. Fortunately, for 150 such families in the Jerusalem area, Yad Sarah s Adopt a Family program sends out specially trained volunteers once or twice a week to give family caregivers a well-deserved break.. The purpose behind the project is two-fold: to give family caregivers a chance to step out and care for their own needs, and to provide, at the same time, a social experience for the housebound patient.. The innovative program has been most effective in raising spirits and breaking the cycle of loneliness and seclusion experienced by the housebound.. Many of the patients served have progressive diseases or are terminally ill, and volunteers are trained to engage them in activities suited to their needs and capabilities.. Emphasis is on connecting to the patients healthy aspects and what they had enjoyed doing in the past.. The visit is social, value-based and spiritual as well.. Activities included in the visit are as varied as playing board games, teaching, reading, computers, and watching TV.. Currently about 70 volunteers are active in the project.. They come from all walks of life and include professionals in community service, medical and para-medical fields, some of whom are pensioners.. The DAAT medical query service has moved to Yad Sarah.. (It was previously based in the Hadassah Medical Center.. ) DAAT - Hebrew for knowledge - acts as a bridge between the patient and the health care provider.. Nava Dolev, founder of DAAT, explains that the idea is to provide a person needing medical treatment or surgery with full information so that he can understand his condition, the various options open to him, and make an intelligent decision, based on that knowledge.. DAAT consists of two and a quarter paid workers - nurses and a librarian - and some 30 volunteers, including physicians, biochemists, nurses, therapists and psychologists and offers its services free of charge.. So far, according to Nava Dolev, DAAT has answered some 25,000 queries in the 6 years of its existence.. This service allows people to ask their questions from their homes, either by telephone or email (see below), rather than come to Yad Sarah.. The reply, which is sent to the person s home, consists of all kinds of pertinent material in layman s, easy-to-understand language including relevant articles.. According to Nava Dolev, this is the only medical service of its kind in Israel.. Within the Yad Sarah framework, the Jerusalem Council for Children and Youth and Da at (Health Information Services) have joined together to establish a new information center for the learning disabled (LD) to serve parents, students, and professionals..

Here para-medical services, physical and occupational therapy, music, art, gardening, movement and other kinds of therapy, meals and social events are provided daily for the severely disabled, old or young, especially those recovering from CVA or accidents.. This continued rehabilitation takes up where the hospital and health funds leave off.. The participants are brought to the centers in Yad Sarah s vans, receive their treatments from professionals and volunteers, enjoy a cooked meal and are then brought home by van.. The activities at these centers often stops or slows the deterioration in their condition, and at times even improves it - and their caregivers are also given a breathing spell..

Elderly people living alone - and their families - can find peace of mind and security with the two-way transmitters which connect to Yad Sarah s computerized communication center in Jerusalem 24 hours a day 365 days a year.. A touch of a button (worn on the wrist) automatically activates a voice connection with the control room where a screen flashes the caller s name, address, medical details, languages spoken, phone numbers of relatives, neighbors who have keys, doctor, nearest first aid station, etc.. The caller can speak from any room in the house.. The duty operator sends help as needed, and has been trained to calm a frightened person.. Thousands of Israelis are connected to Yad Sarah in this way, and lives have been saved by this service.. Anyone can connect to this service, for a one-time payment of 300 NIS (for insurance and back-up batteries) and a refundable deposit of 300 NIS.. There is no further monthly fee..

  • Title: Volunteer organization in the business of helping others. help us help them.
    Descriptive info: Volunteers.. The backbone of Yad Sarah is its army of volunteers.. From town and country, from all walks of life, men and women of all ages, in every corner of Israel, give of their time and abilities to make Yad Sarah work.. There would be no Yad Sarah without them.. With over 6,000 volunteers, of whom about 2,000 work on a regular basis from two to six times a week, and only a minimum number in salaried positions, this is virtually a volunteer-run organization.. It is no small matter to deploy and make efficient use of such a large and diverse population.. Much effort and skill go into their training, placement, welfare and esprit  ...   correct placement, in order to insure that the volunteers maintain the initial enthusiasm that brought them to Yad Sarah.. For many volunteers, working at Yad Sarah is a rehabilitative experience in itself: the corps of volunteers includes retired people, people who are themselves somewhat disabled, people who could easily be on the receiving end of the services they supply.. The new volunteer undergoes special training for the job.. In the more demanding jobs, there is professional supervision and trouble-shooting.. With time, the volunteer is given more specialized training and upgrading.. Yad Sarah is known throughout Israel for its success in recruiting, training, placing, upgrading, administering and rewarding the largest corps of volunteers in the country..
