Aging in place is the phrase used to describe seniors who choose to stay living in their home – even when aging becomes more challenging.
Aging in place is a popular choice instead of moving to a skilled nursing facility, and over 96% of older adults in Israel are currently aging in place! Aging in place requires coordination and utilizing services and resources available to ease the burdens often encountered as people age. With aging in place, more people can choose where to live, and to maintain a higher level of independence for a longer period of time.
Aging in place can be challenging for many reasons. It requires coordinating various aspects of care, such as:
Each of these basics is necessary for aging in place to be successful for you or your loved one.
EMA Care, as the premier case management company in Israel will help you with organizing medical care and case management for people who choose aging in place.
Mrs. B is an 80 year old widow living alone in her apartment in Israel. She has experienced various health setbacks, and she has chosen to "age in place". Her home is comfortable and reassuring to her, especially when she does not feel well. Two of her children are in Israel and two are living in The States. Mrs. B's health issues are varied and she has been confused lately. The children are not health professionals and do not know if the confusion is the result of her illness, aging,medication or everything combined. There is a lot of stress in getting the best care for their mother and the children have been disagreeing among themselves. EMA Care was able to assess Mrs. B's health care, make valuable suggestions, and lead the way to assure Mrs. B will receive the best medical care in Israel. Mrs. B and her children are able to relax, knowing EMA Care is working hard for Mrs. B's well-being.
As people grow older, even minor health issues can blossom into serious issues and have a snowball effect on the body, state of mind and life. One fall can affect quality of life forever. Medical care can be complicated and confusing, particularly to the tens of thousands of elderly immigrants in Israel. Different physicians may contradict each other, and each child may have different opinions regarding care.

When we help with health care decisions, we are using our medical knowledge and experience. Our comprehensive approach to health means we look at ALL of the patient, not only the medical issues.

My experience with Ema Care has been so positive that I wanted to share it in case it could help someone else.
