In 2002, a survey has been conducted by the three churches “Catholic, Orthodox, & Greek Catholic” in Taybeh. It found that 40 senior citizens whose age 65+ were identified who were lacking proper daily care. In response, the local parish together with the Latin Patriarchate of Jerusalem established a pioneer project in Taybeh to serve senior citizens who are marginalized and largely unattended.
The center provides all necessary day and night care to senior citizens and attends with the limited resources available to their dietary and medical needs. The center also provides laundry services to personal attires to all residents.
The Project Development Office and the Procurement Of ce of the Latin Patriarchate visited several times the elderly house of Beit Afram in order analyze how one can improve the well being of the residents and to facilitate the work of the missionaries and the staff. After a deep study, it has been established that supplying three kinds of equipment would be highly appreciated.
