A year ago when 72-year-old David was ready to leave the hospital after a heart operation, he could not get up from his wheelchair. While his wife, Clara was in good health and a few years younger, she did not know how she could manage. David was almost twice her size. "Put me in a nursing home, and I`ll die," he declared. Clara turned to Yad Sarah for help. And the patient hoist saved his life, and hers.
Simple to operate, the patient hoist makes a real difference in the important decision to keep a loved one at home and out of a public institution.
Yad Sarah has a small stock of hoists available for people like David and Clara for loan.
But we don`t have enough. Yad Sarah urgently needs to purchase 100 more patient hoists to meet the growing demand.
Your gift will make the difference. Help give families a choice. Let them keep their loved ones at home.
