Many young adults have never experienced a life-threatening event in their lives. Most teenagers and youth undermine risks and think they are invincible to dangerous situations. When teenagers see a “smoking can kill” sign on their box of cigarettes, they won’t care and in most cases, they will simply ignore it. Teenagers often do extreme sports and crazy hikes that are known to be dangerous because they don’t think the danger applies to them.
Many young adults tend to separate between themselves and their future-selves “this is a future me problem”, or “I’ll deal with it tomorrow” – are common things that teenagers and young adults say. Many countries use this to their advantage, for example: usually, countries will recruit people for the army when they are 18 years old because teenagers at that age don’t think that the stereotypes of the war (getting injured or dying) apply to them.
During the Coronavirus, the world has been hit with a large number of infected people all over the world, as well as, many deaths. Most of the deaths have been people who are above the age of 50 and with pre-existing conditions such as heart/lung disease.
While most of the deaths are people who are older and ill, they aren’t the ones who are highly infectious. Young adults between 20-29 are the population that is the most infectious in Israel. Additionally, most of the people who have Coronavirus at this age don’t show any signs of infection.
Young adults don’t necessarily think that they will get sick from the COVID-19, therefore, they aren’t as careful about wearing masks and they don’t do social distancing. Young adults all over Israel are still going to public areas (parks and beaches) and going out with friends. Then later, the same young adults will go and visit their siblings and parents and spread the virus.
It is important to understand that when a teenager goes out and doesn't follow the rules – they will infect others and could cause A LOT OF HARM to society. Most of the recent outbreaks are due to high-schools students and people 20-40 not following the rules. This has caused many people to get sick and thousands of people to be quarantined in their homes.
Young adults and teens need to follow the rules by wearing masks (properly), washing their hands, and keeping social distancing in a strict way!! Not only do you wear a mask to protect yourself, but more importantly, you wear a mask to protect others!!
I write to express my hakarat hatov (positive recognition) and my gratitude to the two health professionals from EMA Care that have been from the start professionally involved and continue to be interested in my care and long-term recovery.
After a serious fracture, I was hospitalized in the north, and my insurance company recommended EMA Care services to help me. After a surgeon was pressuring me to sign consent for surgery, I realized that I needed to remain...
I would like to recommend Eliana (EMA care) for her sensitive and timely help for clients who are having difficulty navigating the health care system Israel, specifically for Anglos, whether new olim or those of us who been here for many years.
The obstacles of interfacing with the health care system here is daunting, especially at a time when one is going through an acute or chronic condition that is protracted and complicated. Often one doesn’t know whom to turn to or where to go,...
My son went to Israel for a year requiring infusion every 6-8 weeks. It was very stressful at times to coordinate getting his meds sent to Israel, scheduling appointments, and having to worry about him going on his own. Then a friend told me about EMA Care. EMA Care was truly amazing.
You can speak to an American who understands your concerns and will walk you through the entire process, from dealing with insurance to making appointments, and even getting someone to escort your...
When our son was injured in a car accident during his yeshiva year in Israel, he had to start navigating the medical system on his own. But once we contacted Dr. Eliana Aaron at EMA Care (www.HealthCareIsrael.com), she immediately flew into action. Dr. Aaron accompanied our son in the ER and made sure he and we knew at every step exactly what was done and what needed to be done, especially important for someone who suffered a concussion and...
During our recent visit to Israel, we really struggled to find food for our son who has anaphylactic level allergies to egg and sesame. We approached both restaurants and hotels and were told they were unable or unwilling to take responsibility for preparing his food.
After learning about Dr. Eliana on-line, we contacted her in the...
We want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the amazing gift you have given us over this Pesach- the gift of having you with us!!!!
We have NEVER felt more comfortable, calm, and at ease than we did these past 10 days. Your warmth, professionalism, kindness, and care shown through in all that you did.
My children are so grateful that they were able to be with you this Pesach. You made sure that they were so well looked after and they felt so at ease and...
It sounds like my dad has decided to hire you and I'm thrilled.
He actually seems much calmer than he has been in a long time and he is very happy with what the EMA Care staff has done so far.
You provide an amazing service and I feel very fortunate to have you on board.
“EMA” Care is so fitting a name for Dr. Eliana Aaron’s exceptional gap year concierge health care service. Dr. Aaron is not only an incredible health care professional; she is also an “Ema Extraordinaire” in every sense of the word. My child had a range of medical needs while abroad, some anticipated and others not, and she was there for him (and me) – even in the middle of the night, -- always calm, reassuring, thinking out of the box, getting him to the appropriate medical professionals...
