Over the past 30 years, 57- year-old Afula native Rachel Maman has served as a caregiver for the elderly, working in a local nursing home. But for this mother and grandmother, who describes herself as a “people person,” nature is taking its course and exhaustion is setting in. She is starting to think about her career options as she approaches a more senior age.

Luckily for Maman, along with many other industrial and manual workers – as well as professionals in Israel’s labor force – a very special foundation has been established to assist those approaching retirement to launch a brand-new career so that they can continue to earn a living while maintaining productivity and self-worth.
