By advancing ability, ADI empowers Israel’s most vulnerable individuals – children, adolescents and young adults with severe disabilities – to reach their greatest lifetime potentials. ADI is also reimagining rehabilitation, providing cutting-edge therapeutic and recovery services to individuals needing inpatient and outpatient care following an accident or health event at the first-ever rehabilitation hospital in Israel’s south.
ADI focuses on enhancing and enriching the lives of every person we serve. For our residents and special education students with severe disabilities, this entails custom health care, individualized growth plans, and goal-setting to advance personal fulfillment and achievement. For individuals facing rehabilitation, this involves accessing the best available rehabilitation care, innovations and resources they need and deserve.
ADI’s teams of professional staff and volunteers at ADI Negev-Nahalat Eran and ADI Jerusalem are pioneering and sharing new ways to transform the lives of individuals in need of rehabilitation and their families. ADI also advocates, educates and leads efforts nationally and globally on disability inclusion, disability equity and providing rehabilitative care with dignity and a focus on the future.
ADI provides its residents and special education students with the specialized services they need to grow and thrive, its rehabilitation patients with the treatments and therapies they need to heal and return to their lives, and the community at large with tangible opportunities for encountering disability, raising awareness and promoting acceptance.
ADI (pronounced ah-dee) is the Hebrew word for a radiant and multifaceted jewel, a name that reflects our expansive vision and broad scope of activities, including disability care, rehabilitation, research, employment, education, community services and Tikkun Olam. It also speaks to the importance and great value of our mission to care for the most precious members of our society – those who cannot care for themselves. Understanding that all individuals deserve the best available care and every possible opportunity to reach their greatest potentials, ADI provides comprehensive rehabilitative solutions for children, adolescents and adults with severe disabilities and complex medical conditions and pioneers cutting-edge therapeutic and recovery services for anyone touched by disability, all in a dignified, warm and loving atmosphere.
It’s all in the name: ADI celebrates Ability at every level, promotes Diversity and insists on Inclusion.
