Homecare Services

The Claims Conference provides homecare services for elderly disabled Holocaust survivors in 47 countries around the world. Our network of partner organizations helps ensure that Holocaust victims are treated with sensitivity and compassion and know they are not alone.

How We Help

Homecare attendants provide personal care to Holocaust victims in their homes to allow them to live at home for as long as possible. Homecare includes help with activities of daily living like bathing, dressing, and eating; administering medication; light housekeeping and cooking; and chores such as shopping.
