Bikur Cholim’s Dial-a-Ride’s Service provides transportation to and from medical appointments. In addition to our volunteer drivers, a wheelchair-accessible bus enables patients to be comfortably transported to and from medical appointments. The bus has been generously donated in memory of Mrs. Lily Gartner a”h, ,לאה בת אברהם ע"ה by the Sigler, Jacobowitz and Seidenfeld families.
Bikur Cholim maintains a gemach for free lending of medical equipment. Our inventory includes wheelchairs, walkers, canes, crutches, bathroom equipment, and more.
Every day, approximately fifty meals, catering to specific requests and dietary needs, are prepared in Yenta’s Kitchen. Dedicated volunteers deliver these C.O.R certified meals to hospitals and homes. The wholesome meals, conveying caring and compassion, are a highlight of the day to those receiving them.
To protect patients who are in a grave state and unable to communicate their wishes or values, Rabbonim have prepared a “Halachic Power of Attorney”. This document, designed specifically for patients in Canada, empowers individuals to make their wishes known in advance, and ensures that their wishes will be respected, regardless of their ability to communicate.
Bikur Cholim is committed to preventing and alleviating the potential isolation and loneliness of hospital stays. Our trained volunteer force regularly supports hospital patients from admission to discharge and beyond.
Bikur Cholim ensures that members of the community will have a true Yom Tov experience. From beautiful Seder Plates for Pessach to custom made, hospital-safe menorahs for Chanukah, Bikur Cholim keeps these special days a source of joy for hospitalized and homebound patients.
