About Us

Who we are?

iSavta was founded in 2011 by Ariel Cabiri, an Israeli entrepreneur, as a garage startup. Ariel started the company out of a personal need to take care of his grandma Ruth (Savta mean grandma in Hebrew). Ariel is the CEO of iSavta, which has become the market leader in Israel, both online and offline, in terms of placements and signed up users.

Our story

Ariel’s grandma Ruth was 99 (and a half…) years old when she passed away. In the last 25 years of her life, she was assisted by caregivers from many different places around the world, so he got to know this ecosystem of caregiving pretty well.

Many of the caregivers became his friends, and he is still in touch with them years after they’ve left the job. He has used these decades of experience when designing this site for the mutual benefit of foreign caregivers and employers around the world.

Grandma Ruth. The reason that iSavta is here.

iSavta is now the biggest online platform in Israel for finding caregivers. We are now working hard to bring the iSavta solution to more countries. Hopefully to yours (-:

Our purpose

iSavta was started in 2011 in order to assist employers (usually elderly patients’ family members) and elderly caregivers to find each other directly and efficiently, in order to save a lot of time and money.

How it works?


Employers sign up and list their requirements (location, caregiver type and gender, etc)


Caregivers sign up and create their professional profile


Employers filter the caregivers list and directly contact relevant caregivers

Why iSavta?


For employers

iSavta gives you, the employer, the ability to save time by contacting the caregiver directly. Save money by directly employing the caregiver without the need for an agency or paying commissions to a healthcare company. Choose from the widest variety of caregivers available.
