Melabev was established nearly 40 years ago as a continuation of care for people with cognitive impairment upon release from the hospital. Today, Melabev operates three day centers in Jerusalem and one in Beit Shemesh. Melabev day centers provide a warm, social and therapeutic environment for people with dementia and Alzheimer’s helping them to age in place. Melabev day centers also provide much-needed respite for family caregivers. In addition to day centers, Melabev offers an array of programs and services for people with Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia:
At Home with Melabev – professionally designed therapeutic activities in the home for those unable to attend a day center.
Young Onset Dementia – specifically designed therapeutic activities for people living with dementia who are under the age of 65.
“Telephone Reassurance” program – friendly and caring “check-in” calls to older adults living alone.
Caregiving Service – trained personal caregivers for hospital or in-home care.
