Many Holocaust survivors age in their own homes with assistance from home health aides. For low-income survivors, the cost of this care is covered by the Claims Conference. Unfortunately, services halt when a survivor enters a hospital or rehabilitation facility. For survivors, this is the time when the assistance of their trusted aide is needed more than ever.
Our “You’re Not Alone Companion Care” program ensures that aides can assist with bathing, grooming, and feeding while a survivor is in inpatient care, thereby reducing incidents of trauma-induced agitation and the indignity of not having personal needs met during this vulnerable time.
