A Long-Term Care Benefit is given to people who have reached retirement age, live at home in the community, and need help with daily activities (such as getting dressed, getting bathed, eating, mobility in the home, etc.), as well as elderly people who need supervision in order to prevent them from endangering themselves, or their surroundings (such as people with decreased mental faculties like Alzheimer’s disease patients who are liable to endanger themselves or their surroundings if left home alone).
The benefit is generally provided in the form of services, and is usually not monetary in nature!
As part of our on-going collaboration with Kol-Zchut, we are proud to have translated and published a Rights Guide for the Mentally Ill and Their Families. While a number of the links in the guide still lead to Hebrew content, it is an easy-to-read, critical and unique resource of information that was not previously available in English. You can either view the guide below or click here to follow an external link.
AACI’s Shira Pransky Project was founded to help English speakers in Israel better navigate the Israeli healthcare system and make use of the rights and services that are out there.
