When parents begin to age, you are suddenly exposed to an alien world: medical equipment you never were familiar with, medications you never heard of, strange medical terms, and above all – coping with the knowledge that the mother and father you love and cherish are gradually becoming dependent on you. Aging and illness also bring with them a financial burden – expenses for medications and auxiliary equipment, loss of work days for the children due to care of their parents, adapting and renovating the home in a case of motor disability, and more and more.

Many seniors sat at their window this year wishing they could go to Meron for Lag B’Omer as in the past. Imprisoned in their disability, it was no longer possible.
And many seniors, still stunned at their good fortune, sat at the windows of Ezer Mizion’s eleven ambulances, hardly able to believe that the familiar scenes were real. Continue reading Lag B’Omer at Meron
Dear Ezer Mizion,
To all the organizers, counselors, and wonderful volunteers:
How wonderful to be counted among the generous givers,
To turn ordinary days into holidays
A swimming pool with beneficial water exercise,
A tasty and nourishing breakfast,
A good, interesting and friendly lecture.
“Ezer Mizion” – your work lives up to your name.
You can always be found in the right place at the right time
With G-d’s help, with ever rebounding strength.
For all this and more… Our gratitude and thanks.
From the women at the Achiya Hashiloni Geriatric Day Center in Bnei Brak,
with our greatest appreciation and admiration.
British Café Club seniors were treated to a special aerobic activity that was both enjoyable and provided a positive release. The unique activity, “Laughing Drums,” combined laughing yoga with “Drums Alive.” Under the direction of Tzippy Dagan, the amused participants let out their energy on huge rubber balls.

Who loyally holds the steering wheel,
Dear Ms. Topper,
Thank you so much for carrying out the “Make a Wish” program with Mr. Y. E., a resident of our institution for the last six years. Words cannot express what an uplifting and emotional experience it was for Mr. E. – starting from the trip itself, and on through all the life landmarks he visited – the Kotel, the neighborhood in which he lived-Beit Yisrael, the Karlin Chassidic Center, the Etz Chaim Yeshiva, and finally the cemetery, where he was able to visit the graves of his parents. Continue reading Make A Wish
Dear Ezer Mizion Ambulance Team,
“…The wheels of time speed down the highway of life, dashing forward as in a hurtling race down the broad lanes,
Passing the various interchanges, crossing busy intersections.
Only on occasion, when something gets caught in the wheels… Continue reading Wheels
