A Home for Life is a facility located in a residential area that offers its residents a lifestyle as similar as possible to that of a typical family life within the community. The Home serves as a supportive, instructive and developmental environment, and life there affords its members the opportunity of acquiring daily living skills.
Residence in a Home for Life is organized in groups, similar in size to families, so each resident receives individual care. The residents’ welfare and dignity is given top priority. Activity at the Home gears members to function as independently as possible, and encourages each and every one of them to fulfill his/her basic needs: personal hygiene, tidying up the house, working in the kitchen, etc.
An individual program is adapted for each resident, according to his or her age, needs, potential in various art fields (drawing, music, etc.) and occupational therapy requirements.
ALUT operates 19 Homes throughout the country between Carmiel in the north and Be’er Sheva in the south and that requires significant support in order to meet the growing demand for its homes.
ALUT is currently building its 20th Home for Life in Ra'anana and seeking donations to support its construction.
