Long-Term Care Insurance Law services

ALEH Kiryat Ono is licensed by the National Insurance Institute to provide care services to
elderly entitled to receive long-term care benefit from the National Insurance.
ALEH provides long-term services in the following localities:  
Kiryat Ono, Givat Shmuel, Ganei Tikva,
Regional Council South Sharon, Yehud, Savion, northern Tel Aviv, Ramat Gan.

The Long-Term Insurance Law is designed for elderlies who meet the criteria for long-term care benefit and receiving free-of-charge nursing services for a period determined according to the Long-Term Care Law regulations. 
The
amount of care hours is determined in accordance with to two criteria: 
1. The functioning capacity of the
elderly
2. The level of her/his monthly income.


The nursing care provided through the Long-Term Law Services includes assistance as follows:
- the
daily tasks of dressing, bathing, eating, controlling secretions, supervision;
- h
ousehold maintenance: usual cleaning, cooking, washing and the like.

The nursing is done by caregivers authorized for long-term care services.
The 
caregivers employed by ALEH Kiryat Ono are carefully selected by social workers with a master's degree. Each one is employed after a successful interview and a presentation of recommendations. Most part of the caregivers are trained and possess a "qualified caregiver" certificate.

We do our best to match the caregiver to the elderly; we make the first home visit at the elderly's home in the presence of the elderly and a close family member. During this visit we examine together the needs and the desires of the elderly in order to reach the best match between her/him and the caregiver.
During
the entire service period we accompany the elderly and the caregivers and respond quickly to every call and request.

We specialize in providing to each
elderly the caregiver most suitable to her/his unique needs and in
training and giving personal support to the
elderly and her/his family. 

Pre-Long-Term Care Insurance Law services

ALEH Kiryat Ono provides Pre-Long-Term Law services, immediate placement of the caregiver until the elderly's intitlement to a National Security long-term care benefit is approved

Long-Term Care private services given by Israeli caregivers - at home, in hospitals and in institutions

If the
long-term care benefit does not meet all the needs of the elderly, private extra hours can be received, and if the application for a long-term care benefit is rejected, it's possible to receive private care hours by a suitable caregiver.
 
Foreign workers for long-term care - employing a foreign worker

Long-term care by a foreign worker at the elderly's home allows the person to remain at home and in
her/his natural environment, even if her/his
functioning is very poor and she/he needs full
supervision.
 The entry of a foreign worker can give peace of mind for the elderly and her/his family.
The ALEH department for home care employs foreign workers and provides advice and guidance to the
elderly,
her/his family and the foreign worker. 
The workers' placements are done through
licensed companies, chosen by the management of the ALEH organization in a tender process.
