The Supportive Community: A Program to Enhance the Quality of Life of the Elderly in Israel

By Jenny Brodsky, Ayelet Berg-Warman

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), 2006

The Supportive Community Program is part of the trend to help elders continue living in their homes while maintaining their quality of life and helping families cope with the burden of care. Among its main contributions are its provision of a sense of security and its meeting needs that are not met by any other service. It creates a neighborhood cooperative structure that provides the elderly with security and facilitates access to health and social services, providing them with a friendly and reliable address for any problem that emerges. The Supportive Community Program developed in Israel, as well as similar programs developed abroad, provides opportunities for mutual learning and innovation in care.
