The medical needs of the elderly in Israel continue to grow as a result of increases in life expectancy and the arrival of large numbers of elderly immigrants. As a response to this need, Herzog’s Geriatric Division has developed rapidly over the years.
This division includes but is not limited to:
- Internal Medicine
- Physical Rehabilitation
- Respiratory Support
- Complex Nursing
- Treatment from Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease and other dementias.
Herzog’s Department of Psychogeriatrics cares for two major types of patients: geriatric patients with severe dementia, and patients with chronic severe psychiatric illness. Elderly psychiatric patients require a specialized combination of psychiatric and geriatric long-term care.
