id you do any of these today: Get out of bed? Bathe? Dress? Eat a meal?

We take these simple life tasks for granted. But older adults with Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia can do few if any of these tasks without assistance.

With over 150,000 diagnosed people living with Alzheimer's in Israel, and numbers predicted to increase exponentially every year, there is a growing and urgent need for dedicated community care to ensure the security and quality of life for this valuable population.

The participants in Melabev's day centers and other programs are ones who gave so much in their younger life to society, their community, and their family. They were once young with hopes and dreams, healthy and full of life until one day, they began to forget, and more and more their memory began to fail. Then came the diagnosis they and their family feared – dementia.

15% of Melabev's day center participants are Holocaust survivors. Having endured untold mental, emotional, and physical pain in their younger life, these traumatic memories are resurfacing as they experience cognitive decline. Fears, aggression, or depression often manifest traumatic memories; therefore, specialized care and therapies are especially crucial for these individuals.

Melabev's services:

    Four day centers, adapted by culture, language, and level of cognitive ability

    'At Home with Melabev' personalized professional therapeutic services in the home

    Siyud – Personal Caregiving Service for hospital or in-home care

    Young Onset Dementia program for those younger than age 65

    Telephone Reassurance program – making friendly check-in calls for older adults living alone

    Snoezelen multi-sensory therapy
