Editor's Note — The needs
and lifestyles of senior adults
cover a wide range — from
those who are frail and need
ongoing nursing care, to those
who are independent but re-
quire an affordable place to
live. Several agencies aiding
the elderly receive funding
from the Jewish Welfare
Federation's Allied Jewish
Campaign. With the 1990
Campaign under way
throughout Detroit, the follow-
ing profile — the first in a
series — shows how support of
our community's services
translates into positive results,
especially for one Jewish
woman.
Until Dorothy Whitledge
moved into Jewish Federation
Apartments in late
November, she had "just
about given up hope?'
She has been on her own
since she was 18. But at 65
she found herself in ill health,
existing on Social Security.
"After paying the rent and
a few bills, there was not even
enough money for food," she
said. "I've worked all my life
and I've never been used to
people helping me."
Dorothy worked until about
four years ago, when her
employer went out of
business. After three heart at-
tacks and "so many opera-
tions, you don't want to hear
about them all," she began to
have trouble living on her
own.
Then she heard about
Jewish Federation Apart-
ments.
"I had been receiving
transportation to my doctors
from the wonderful people at
Jewish Family Service?" she
said. "One of the counelors
there told me about the new
(Ben and Harriett Teitel)
building. She got the ball roll-
ing and I was moved in by the
end of November.
"It's a very heart-warming
situation here. I had actually
given up hope that anyone
cared what happened to me. I
don't like being dependent on
others, but it sure is nice to
know someone is there.
"The staff here is unusual-
ly nice. They're very concern-
ed with everybody. Even with
such little things like making
sure people have others to eat
with."

Howard Salter is a public
relations associate at the
Jewish Welfare Federation.

Jewish Federation Apart-
ments has four buildings in
Oak Park and West Bloom-
field, housing 519 people.
Residents are served five din-
ners a week in the dining
room, but prepare breakfasts
and lunches in their own
apartments.
There are many activities.
Residents are taken to shop-
ing malls and on organized
trips to movies and concerts.
"It really is a great place for
the elderly," Dorothy said.
"Even though I'm one of the
spring chickens here, it's nice
to see that people don't have
to sit in their rooms and look
out the window and vegetate.
"There are even days when
I may not be feeling too well
and I see these people, many
of them much older than me,
walking outside with canes
and walkers, and it really
gives one an incentive to go
on and live." ❑
