Elderly people are forced to go to war to choose a caregiver. The state wants to deport


The committee members believed that most of the workers who come to Israel are talented enough to provide the nursing care that meets Granot’s needs, and determined that another foreign worker can be helped. It was also noted that since he lives in Shoham, which is defined as a “central area”, this makes it easier for him to find another legal foreign worker. Following this, the family filed an appeal to the Court of Appeals – which was also dismissed last April, during the Corona closure. The court ruled that Saranga must leave by June 15. It was further determined that the committee considered a variety of considerations and the decision is within the bounds of reasonableness, and therefore there is no room for intervention. In addition, the court ruled that this should not cause serious health damage to the granules.

The family members subsequently appealed to the Jerusalem Administrative Court, which issued an order prohibiting her deportation until the end of the legal proceedings. “I do not understand why they refuse,” Granot said. “They claim that maybe someone can be found after me and I do not know how, I think they just insist and I do not understand why. It is an unbearable situation.” He explained that “she is saving me, and if she goes I am not sure I will be able to last. After giving to the country for nearly 70 years, I was in the army from December 1951 to 1981, and then I was in the Ports Authority until I reached retirement age. I do not know Why are I being harassed? ”

His daughter made it clear that the family did not think they would have to struggle with the state. “Very innocently, we also submitted the application ourselves with a very reasoned letter, and we did it with the understanding that the state really has a lot to deal with, and probably also to the population authority,” Orit explained. “We did not think we would have to fight with the state for such a thing. This is a man in his late twenties, who asks for some more time with the same caregiver so as not to change.”

“This is a humanitarian committee that is supposed to examine in a humanitarian way, but there is nothing humanitarian in this process,” she said. Orit emphasized that, contrary to the words of the judges and committee members, making contact between the patient and the therapist is difficult. “He’s anxious,” the daughter said. “He is a very clear person. The body betrays him, but the head works and works sharply. He understands what the situation is and it just makes him anxious. I think for him it is the end of life if he has to change a patient. I said that to Dayan as well.”
