According to the Central Bureau of Statistics, approximately 700,000 Israelis are coping with loss of hearing. The phenomenon is more common among older adults: every third person over the age of 65 and every second person over the age of 75 is hard-of-hearing. Hearing loss severely hinders one's ability to communicate with the surroundings, increases the chances for dementia, and causes frustration, stress and loneliness. Optimal hearing rehabilitation can reduce these phenomena.
Bekol is a leader in professional hearing rehabilitation for people over the age of 18, nationwide, and is the only organization to cater to the entire spectrum of their needs. Bekol’s activity has a wide impact in all fields of society, by a broad range of programs and a variety of services: public awareness campaigns; diagnosing hearing loss; guidance and consultation; accompaniment and support; job placement assistance; lectures, workshops and courses; promoting an accessible public space; guidance and training for professionals and service providers; legislation, regulation and advocacy.
Help us continue improving people with hearing disabilities' quality of life and welfare, empowering them, facilitating their integration into the general society and independence, and advocating for their rights
