A Melabev team of multi-professionals brings Melabev services and activities right into the family home. A professional assessment is made as to the needs of each particular client and then an occupational therapist, social worker, activity workers plus a nurse and geriatrician are all available for working with the patient and the family members under their roof.
Therapeutic activities include: spiritual care, horticulture, art therapy, massage, music therapy and use of Savion (the original Melabev computer software for mental stimulation.)
Palliative care is provided for end stage patients and guidance on end of life issues for the whole family. In between regularly scheduled house calls the members of team are accessible by phone whenever needed. Melabev gives them a shoulder to lean on. This service won the Glickman prize for Innovation in care.
