Melabev specializes in Alzheimer’s and dementia care, and raises public awareness of the needs of older adults and people with dementia. Melabev enables quality of life with dignity and increased self-worth for its participants, while providing respite and support for their loved ones.

Melabev was founded in 1981 by Prof. Arnold Rosin, and Mrs. Leah Abramowitz, MSW, both of Shaarei Zedek Hospital's Geriatric Department. Through their work with geriatric patients, they found that when patients with dementia were being discharged there were virtually no services in the community for this population. So they opened the first day care program in Israel for people with Alzheimer's disease - providing a day of therapeutic activities for the participants and much-needed respite and support for their families.

In Israel, there are approximately 180,000 people with Alzheimer’s disease, and thousands more who have not been diagnosed. Of those with diagnoses, 10% are aged 65 and younger.

Melabev’s Programs & Services:

5 Day Centers - comprised of groups based on cognitive level. Social and therapeutic activities are provided as well as breakfast, a hot lunch and round-trip transportation.
