Looking for carer in TA

Hi, my parents will be visiting Tel Aviv later this year and my Mother is in a wheelchair full-time. I am looking to arrange for a carer to come to her hotel to assist her every morning and evening. Is anyone of aware of any agencies who could help with this type of request.

I was told to contact Yad Sarah who gave me some numbers to call but none were able to assist with my query - some of the companies provided care workers but only on a more permanent basis. Any help / leads would be much appreciated.

Am I the only one who doesn't know what a "carer" is?

A care-giver. The word is awkward but reading the whole post made it clear as to what the OP was looking for. ( or as I would have said, when I was working--context clues help one infer the meaning of the unknown word, so one should be able to easily infer what is meant )

I was on the bus and read it as "Looking for a career in Trip Advisor".

Another indication that I should not be giving advice on this forum

Ziggy--until I opened it, and saw the context, I too read it as career.

Sorry for not making my request clear. In the UK care-givers are known as carers! I suppose it is a pretty unusual request but thanks for looking.

No, just thanks for clarifying. I can't help you on the substance of your request, but I wish you all the best in your search!

Your request was clear--don't apologize. Most of the people got it. Maybe it is because in Israel many are used to British English and are "bilingual" --in American and British English. ie. I just recently learned what a rota was! ( and now my name is on one)
