Housing Arrangements

A project designed to improve the quality of life of the disabled person in his home, including a connection to a distress button, a "neighborhood father" who assists with repairs at home, subsidized medical services, including ambulance transportation as is necessary, as well as social activities in the community for the group of members of the program.

For details on this subject, please contact the expert Rehabilitation Centers located in the regional offices (in Hebrew).

The client’s financial participation is required to finance the service.

Out-of-Home Housing and Housing Arrangements

A person with a mental developmental disability may move to live in an out-of-home setting.
 
Housing Frameworks:

  • Housing in the community (apartments and hostels) - the purpose of housing in the community is to enable the integration of people with disabilities into community life in all aspects of their lives: housing, education, employment, and leisure. Housing in the community includes residential apartments in the community, group houses, hostels.
  • Boarding dormitories - designed for people with a severe disability or a number of disabilities. These frameworks provide tenants with all their needs, within the framework itself.
  • Foster care - a combination of foster care intended for people with all types of handicaps, especially for children under the age of 18.


The disabled person may only move to out-of-home housing after he or she has passed the following:

  • A diagnostic committee
  • A placement committee
  • A reception committee
