Once the injured leave hospital, they come to our Beit Halochem rehabilitation centres situated in Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, Haifa and Be’er Sheva. There, they are provided with a ‘home away from home’.
The Beit Halochem centres are a place of sanctuary for both the injured and their families, enormously important to the recovery process. Offering an array of sporting, cultural, social and rehabilitation facilities, they serve to assist members to maintain physical fitness and emotional well being. Many of Israel’s elite paralympic athletes train and play at the Beit Halochem centres.
Sports programs make a major contribution to successful rehabilitation by maintaining the members’ physical fitness and preventing deterioration of their health. Each center also offers a wide choice of social and creative activities for members.
Most centers house an auditorium, multipurpose gymnasium, classrooms, fitness rooms, swimming pool, occupational therapy unit, physical therapy unit, cafeteria, offices and a social wing.
