Severely handicapped members – blind, paraplegics, amputees and others with disabilities requiring special care – are all treated at the rehabilitative therapy wing. Beit Halochem maintain close contact with hospitals and rehabilitation centres around the country treating wounded servicemen and women so that they can reach these people as early as possible. Upon their release from these hospitals they are referred to the Beit Halochem Centre nearest to their homes, thus ensuring an uninterrupted course of treatment which is so vital to successful rehabilitation.
Beit Halochem’s Physiotherapy Centre which treats a wide array of neurological, orthopedic and sports related injuries is equipped with state of the art equipment. A team of experienced physiotherapists work with each disabled veteran according to their specific needs.
Special treatments in water have been recognised as an important and essential factor when treating people with severe injuries. For this purpose, specially heated swimming pools as well as special hydrotherapy pools were built at the Beit Halochem Centres. Temperatures are specifically adjusted to meet the needs of those disabled veterans suffering from serious orthopedic problems especially paraplegics and quadriplegics. Treatments are given by a team of specially trained professionals.
Beit Halochem views each member as unique and special. A team of Para-medical experts creates custom made rehabilitation programmes suited to each member based on their own needs. These programmes can include use of the fitness centre, swimming pool and other complementing treatments which aim to improve and enhance the physical and emotional wellbeing of those being treated.
