Donate to this year’s Housepital Appeal

The Housepital

Yad Sarah has pioneered the Housepital, a home-hospital service that provides patients, such as the terminally ill and elderly holocaust survivors, with end of life care and enables a dignified death at home. The Housepital also offers patients in recovery the option of recuperating in the safety and comfort of their own homes to avoid the discomforts of long term hospitalization.

Each Housepital is designed based on the individualized needs of the patient, but includes:

  • Hospital bedUntitled
  • Hoist (a machine to lift the client into and out of bed)
  • Oxygen concentrator/oxygen tank
  • Emergency Alarm Center services
  • Specialized mattress for bed-sore prevention
  • Walker
  • Wheelchair
  • Bathroom adaptive equipment
  • Home visits and family caregiver relief
  • Delivery and installation
  • Home visits by volunteers

Yad Sarah urgently needs funding for 200 Housepitals in 2017 for patients who will only be able to leave hospital once a Housepital becomes available and can be installed in their home.

The Leona M. and Harry B. Helmsely Charitable Trust has kindly pledged matching funding of £1,200,000 to Yad Sarah which will cover 50% of the total project budget. However this is contingent on Yad Sarah obtaining donations to cover the remaining 50% of the budget.

Therefore we need to raise £1,200,000.

Personal story of a family helped by Yad Sarah

A young mother was battling breast cancer, but there was nothing more the doctors could do. She longed to be home with her family in the time that she had left. Yad Sarah made it all possible, lending equipment to make her comfortable. Because of Yad Sarah, she was able to attend her son’s Bar Mitzvah before she passed away. Shortly thereafter, we received this note from the woman’s mother: “I feel it is the most difficult thing in the world for a mother to watch her child suffer, but Yad Sarah made it a bit easier on me. You have meant the world to us and I am eternally grateful.”
