THE HOSTEL’S RECEPTION PROCESS

“Amit Hostel, Ramla” is a four-story building. 37 residents live in the building’s 8 apartments. It receives men and women ages 25 and older, with light to medium developmental disability, diagnosed as capable for community living.
The applicants are referred to the Hostel by the Ministry of Social Affairs and Social Services via district placement committees, after the applicant has received a diagnosis and a recommendation for community living from the diagnosis committee.
“Amit Hostel, Ramla” serves as a home for its residents, and accompanies them all through the day. We are at their and your disposal at any time. Once the new resident is acclimated, their family may visit whenever they wish.
Come and visit as you please, we love hosting!

DAY ONE IN “AMIT HOSTEL”

A day of mixed feelings, between the joy of a fresh start, the sorrow of separation, and the fear of the unknown. We are here for you, standing by the new resident. Every day, all day, always with joy!

ACCLIMATION PERIOD

Some residents are quick to adapt to their new home, while others take longer. With your cooperation we will construct a reception program according to the needs of the resident.

“FIRST NIGHT AWAY FROM MOTHER”

Some experience it on the first night, some after several days, and some never experience it at all; usually the reception crisis stems from the resident’s difficulty to perceive the connection between their new home and their family home. The deeper the connection and cooperation between the family and the hostel staff, the shorter the crisis.

SETTLING IN

“I’m going to visit my parents; I’ll be back tomorrow.” “When will I be back at the hostel?” such phrases signify the resident is settling into their new home in Amit and is beginning to identify with its life routine.
