In order to provide each person with solutions to meet their needs (cognitive, emotional, physical and social), each participant has a specially tailored personal program that includes various therapeutic, social and vocational activities.
The goal is to provide each of the participants with the opportunity to find a way to be maximally involved in all areas using the tools available to us and to maintain a daily routine.
The participants experience many difficulties in performing day-to-day tasks. We carry out evaluations to maximize their independence and subsequently provide supporting equipment and adjust our approach and training for the team (ADL and IADL) accordingly.
Therapeutic intervention includes individual and group treatments both indoors and outside.
Most Beit Noam participants get around using manual or motorized wheelchairs. As a result of their mature ages and deteriorating physical condition, they often develop severe deformities and contractures all over their bodies. The combination of severe deformities and lack of movement requires special seating adjustments to enable functioning and prevent health hazards.
Beit Noam participants work in various vocational activities – industrial tasks and office work that includes typing, paper-shredding, dismantling and putting things together and operating a kiosk and a recycling corner.
Each participant is assessed and provided with a suitable job with a tailored working environment and specific accessibility adjustments.
We at Beit Noam appreciate the abilities and difficulties of the participants and we believe that every person has the right to a feeling of self-worth and awareness and appreciation for their abilities.
