The Kapayim Solution
Complete and Total Care is Offered
Trained members of the Kapayim network are carefully matched to their patients, and are scheduled on recurring shifts for the same patient, which allows them time to bond at every visit. Each volunteer arrives with carefully selected, age-appropriate activities to stimulate and occupy their patients. Whether it is a carnival in a bag, pizza makers, learning material, art projects or custom crafts and activities, patients are distracted, gainfully entertained, and forget their pain for a while.
The maelstrom of illness inadvertently takes its toll on the home atmosphere. In order to solidify the foundation of a family, Kapayim sends carefully selected members of their network to cover shifts at patient homes to assist with the day to day function of the home, so that household routine can be maintained. Home cooked meals, cleaning help, grocery and clothing shopping, private tutoring, and help with bedtime are all part of what provides stability in a home.
The Kapayim Center is a home and headquarters that offers a supervised after-school haven for siblings and children of patients, called “The Kapayim Cabin”, and a one-of-a-kind sterile classroom for immunocompromised preschool children. It is a place where kids can be kids … despite serious illness.
