Wheelchair and special needs accessibility in Israel:
Many people dream their whole lives of visiting Israel and seeing its unique sites. However, many people are stressed about traveling with someone who is in a wheelchair or has special needs because they are concerned about the trip is extremely limited.
The ideal vacation when traveling with someone who is disabled is to find a place that is sensitive towards the disabled and has facilities that will help ease the struggle so that the family may enjoy a fun and stress-free vacation.
Israel has many beautiful sites that are unlike any others in the world. For example the Jerusalem Western Wall, the Dead Sea, and Masada. Many of these sites are ancient and weren’t built for wheels (whether it is a wheelchair, grocery cart, or a stroller). Modern Israel has gone to great lengths to ensure that everyone can enjoy the sites. For example, The old city in Jerusalem has a project that is building handrails all over- in order to help the disabled. The streets have more ramps leading to sidewalks. Many nature reserves and hikes are becoming accessible towards people with special needs. There are also many organizations that have private tours and trips, specifically for people in wheelchairs. In addition, there are many organizations that help the disabled with personalized assistance and equipment.
Here at EMA Care, we have helped tourists with their accommodations, from physical therapy to personal trainers, to dialysis. We have many resources to offer tourists:
EMA Care will ensure that you receive all of the help you need to enjoy a stress-free and successful trip to Israel.
So, when you’re planning a trip to Israel, have no fear because we at EMA Care can help you with all of your needs. This will allow you and your family to have a fun and stress-free vacation to Israel.
EMA Care wishes you a wonderful vacation!
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...
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...
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...
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...
