Words of Strength
To reduce the scale and impact of dementia, Inbal believes we need to acknowledge the magnitude of this problem and its impact on our society. Then, we can create solutions for the day-to-day management of this disease, not just handle emergencies.
Inbal is practicing and building different models of care, trying to find a balance between giving the patients the best care, reducing hospitalization, and tailoring personal treatment options.
As an Atlantic Fellow, Inbal hopes to develop a new home care system for dementia patients in order to reach all patients and especially the underprivileged. She hopes to do this within the public health system in her home country, Israel.
Inbal believes we need to find creative solutions for care at home for dementia patients and their caregivers.
Inbal studied medicine and received her MD from the Hebrew University, Jerusalem, Israel. Inbal continued her residency training in Geriatric Medicine in Meir Hospital, a part of Clalit Health Services. She is a clinical tutor of Geriatrics in the Tel Aviv University, School of Medicine and a practicing attending physician in an acute geriatric ward.
