COVID-19 community resources
Covid-19 has affected everyone and we are working closely with local Councils and other partners to provide resources and support to the community. Our key COVID-19 services are:
Post discharge Care
This magnificent facility at Beis Brucha (former mother and baby home) with beautifully furnished single en-suite bedrooms (many rooms have garden access) is for people who have tested positive for COVID and require care /support upon discharge. The facility is staffed by a manager and two live in care workers, and is further supported by Hatzola who provide twice daily medical monitoring to all residents. We have a physiotherapist who provides personalised physiotherapy support helping patients improve their mobility and support them towards recovery. Average length of stay is 2- 3 weeks and patients who have been discharged have achieved excellent outcomes and improved health and wellbeing.
Kosher Food Boxes
In partnership with Hackney and Haringey Councils, we are preparing and delivering over 100 Kosher food boxes every Thursday evening. The parcels are packed and delivered by volunteers and include a careful selection of basic dry foods, household goods and fruit and veg. Community sponsors have contributed Challahs, grapejuice and a Hamodia further enhancing the parcel selection. If you are isolated and have difficulty with getting to the shops and would like to find out if you meet the criteria for a food box, please call the Helpline or Bikur Cholim.
