Riskin says. "When nurses
get put into nursing homes,
they are thrown into instant
management situations. We
want to train them for this."
Riskin says the seminars, to
be funded through a grant
from the federal Health and
Human Services Depart-
ment, will be given in homes
throughout the state over a
three-year period.

"This will give us
something to take to
academia," Riskin says. "We
hope it can be used as a model
in other states."
LeVine also is overseeing a
project surveying the needs of
nurses who work in homes for
aged. Riskin says they want
to find out how long-term care
nurses view their role. Then
they want to develop a set of
recommendations and
guidelines for nurses for the
long-term care national
organizations, such as the
federal Health Care Financ-
ing Administration,
educators and public policy
makers.
"We need to make changes,"
Riskin says. "Now there is no
body of information with
guidelines for long-term
health care nurses."
The last project is educa-
tion. LeVine is coordinating
an Aging in the Future Con-
ference for September 1990.

tella LeVine describes
her late father-in-law
as a man who felt
elderly people were neglected.
He believed deeply that
religion meant taking care of
one's own people, she says.
The Jewish Home for Aged
began in 1907 on Brush
Street in Detroit. Only a
place to live, not nursing care,
was provided. It moved in the
mid-1930s to Petoskey in
Detroit, where 52 people liv-
ed and nursing care was pro-
vided. The LeVine family
donated a wing at the
Petoskey home in 1954.
As the population shifted,
the Jewish Home for Aged
moved to Borman Hall. A
LeVine family memorial no
longer existed; at the sugges-
tion of former Home Ex-
ecutive Director Chuck Wolfe,
the Institute was founded to
perpetuate the LeVine name.
"Wherever the Home goes,
LeVine will go with it," Stella
LeVine says, adding she hopes
to become a more active voice
in the institute.
Included in the LeVine
family display at Borman
Hall are antique tools made
by the now-defunct family
business, Federal Engineer-
ing, a replica of a shop and a
cube made by David LeVine.
Riskin sits behind the same
desk once used by David
