Emergency coverage for seniors:
As a senior or the child of a senior, the scariest thing that you can imagine is going through an emergency alone (or your parent being alone). It is important to come up with a good emergency plan in the case you don’t have anyone to come with you to the emergency room. It is also important that you have someone who knows the medical system and speaks the local language and can translate between you and the medical staff.
Here at EMA Care, our providers are licensed, experienced health care professionals who speak English, Hebrew and French. Our employees are experienced communicators that have professional, warm personalities required for excellent customer care. With true dedication, the concierge staff treats many common issues and able to diagnose, make local visits, as well as refer to local specialist. Each provider follows up with patients in every case, creating professional and long-lasting relationships with their patients.
Reviewing medical files before traveling:
Knowing which medical files are necessary to bring can be challenging, especially when traveling to a foreign country. Some countries have certain information that they need (and information that they don’t need to know). For example: in America – there is no need for a marriage status, but it required in Israel. A non-medical professional wouldn’t know this; therefore, it is important to have a medical professional review your files.
Imagine that you are on a vacation in a foreign country, your relaxing, and having fun. Suddenly, something happens, and you have to go to the emergency room. You don’t speak the language, therefore, you can’t describe your symptoms, and you cannot communicate with the medical staff and find out what is going on. This is very stressful but avoidable.
EMA Care provides emergency services. We provide both remote and in person services in the hospital. We can advocate for you or a loved one in the ER and help you through this tough and stressful process.
It is very common for tourists to go to the hospital unnecessarily because they think something is wrong and they need immediate help. EMA Care has a 24/7 Telemedicine hotline that will provide you with English-speaking professionals who can assess you can make sure you don’t go to the hospital unnecessarily.
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.

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,...
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...

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...
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...
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...
