Here at Ramat Tamir we do all we can so that the tenants feel safe and protected. Therefore, tenants the get the best medical
service available. The medical service's' station is occupied constantly by a medical assistant 24/7, 365 days a year including
Saturdays and holidays. The medical assistant station responds to every distress call at all times. The clinic is also opened
everyday and known by all health maintenance organizations (HMO), so each tenant can maintain his membership in his own HMO.
The medical files are kept in the clinic. The clinic is occupied regularly by three doctors: a medical director + a doctor + a doctor
from the nursing department (24/7 state of being on-call). The tenants can assist the nurses working here to take blood tests and
other various tests, make appointments to professional doctors outside the house and receiving medicines. The tenants can also
ask to bring them the medicines from the pharmacy - this service is free from charge!
We believe that the unique services provided in Ramat Tamir (services they cannot find in other protected accommodations)
alongside the highest medical standard will ensure our tenants exceptional medical security.
Supportive accommodation and nursing department

to family visits until 22:00 p.m. (apart from the rest hours). Continuous appointments can be made with the department, where
you can get information regarding the family member living in the house. Every six months we initiate an appointment with the
familymembers. The personal phone line of the head of the department is at your service so you can freely call and consult her.
Family members can be aided by private nursing service of Israeli caretakers. If the assistant of a foreign caretaker is needed, the
department will submit recommendation to the health authorities.
The department works under the approval and supervision of the Health Ministry. It is occupied by the highest medical and
nursing staff, assembled of male and female nurses having geriatric training. This staff is not from a contractor company, but
from the houseitself and it services such as physiotherapy, occupational therapy, employment services, and various types of
activities. While waiting for a group activity or after it (and not less than two weeks), the tenants can enjoy recovery services
such as bandaging, bathing, feeding, occupational therapy and physiotherapy.
