Support for family members
In many cases, the responsibility for caring for an elderly or disabled individual rests with a family member, who is the main caregiver. The burden on this primary caregiver is difficult and complex, including dealing with doctors and health funds.
As a result of these multiple roles taken on by primary caregivers, they sometimes experience feelings of confusion, stress, loneliness, and loss of self, which can lead to depression and even illness.
The Caregivers Center addresses this need and offers emotional and practical support that enables caregivers to cope better with the complexities and difficulties involved in caring for a family member. Support groups, social activities, lectures on relevant topics, etc., help ease the depression and loneliness often felt by the caregiver.
The center works in cooperation with community leaders: welfare services, health funds, hospitals and organizations providing information on rehabilitation and nursing.
