Actualizing Senior Entitlements

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. pr golden 10 13 1697_ne_related_content_a_pic_3c804Aging 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

Our Gratitude and Thanks

Dear Ezer Mizion,

Shalom!

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.

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.

Only on occasion, when something gets caught in the wheels… Continue reading Wheels
