Editor's note: Thousands
of Jews here and overseas
are touched by the agencies
of the Jewish Federation of
Metropolitan Detroit. This
is one of a series about real
people that illustrates how
Federation agencies, sup-
ported by the Allied Jewish
Campaign, are helped.
Morris Balowitz likes to
sing. At 92, he also likes to
keep in shape. He has the
best of both worlds at the
Fleischman Residence's
Club Blumberg.
Operated out of the
Jewish Home for Aged-
sponsored West Bloomfield
facility, Club Blumberg is
offered to older adults who
live off the premises, who
are ambulatory, alert and
meet the criteria of a
Fleischman resident. The
five-year-old program has
trips, arts, crafts, music,
exercise, religious services
and classes, current events
discussions and adult
education courses.
Transportation is avail-
able, and the club is open
to all older adults in the
Jewish community. Par-
ticipants can attend from
one to five days. A large-
type daily calendar of
events is distributed to
those who attend.
Before Club Blumberg,
Mr. Balowitz sat at home
while his daughter went to
work. "He had a lack of
stimulation; it was not
good for him." Shirley
Davis said.
For Mrs. Davis, the
availability of the club is a
big help to her and her
father. Without Club
Blumberg, she would have
two choices: stop working
to take care of her father,
or arrange for her father to
live elsewhere.

At first, her father was
reluctant to participate in
the program; he felt he was
giving up his in-
dependence, Mrs. Davis
said. "It used to be 'Do I
have to go today?' Now it's
`When are we going back
to Fleischman?' "
Fleischman Residence is
one of three JHA sites.
Fleischman is for older
adults who are able to live
independently and don't
require round-the-clock
nursing care. Kosher
meals are served, and
housekeeping and linen
services are available. The
residence provides extra
assistance — for dressing,
bathing, doing laundry —
through its Shared Ser-
vices program. The other
two facilities, Borman Hall
and Prentis Manor, are
nursing homes with basic
and skilled nursing care.
Housing for older adults
who don't require the ser-
vices of a home for aged is
available at Jewish
Federation Apartments,
also a member agency of
the Jewish Federation of
Metropolitan Detroit. The
four HUD-subsidized sites
— Prentis Federation
Apartments I and II, Har-
riett and Ben Teitel
Federation Apartments
and Lillian and Samuel
Hechtman Federation
Apartments — house 560
residents in 519 apart-
ments.
A fifth phase, Hechtman
II, is expected to open in
fall 1992. A total of 97
units will be available to
older adults.
Contributions from the
Allied Jewish Campaign
go toward providing kosher
meals for JFA residents.
