ing provided but not con-
sistently," Mr. Budin said.
"Care comes first."
The Home in the past year
set up a family forum sup-
port group in which relatives
of JHA patients can discuss
concerns with JHA staff.
Midge Apple's parents,
Frieda and Louis Zabell,
have lived at Borman Hall
since November 1990. At the
time, she said, she saw prob-
lems with service, and lack
of good staff care.
"I'm real excited," said
Ms. Apple, co-chair of the
family forum support group.
"The staff is listening, and
they take time. The attitude
is changing here."
Jewish Home for Aged,
which operates the 212-bed
Borman Hall, the 100-bed
Prentis Manor and the 108-
room Fleischman assisted
living facility, has been
operating on a budget deficit
for years. JHA President
Schon said the financial pos-
ture is improving.
"We have reduced our loss
this year by about
$600,000," he said. "We still
show a loss of $100,000.
"We are doing marvelous
, things. All of our energies
have been concentrated in
resident services. There is a
rededication and a recommit-
:A
ment.

The Home came. under fire
from the Jewish Federation
last July, after a Federation
executive toured the second
floor of Borman Hall. The
executive said the floor was
untidy and had a rancid
odor.
As a Federation agency,
the Home has been a reci-
pient of monies from the
Allied Jewish Campaign and
United Jewish Charities.
After the visit, Federation
officials began questioning
use of funds. At issue was
supplemental Campaign
allocations to the Home
totalling $4 million over the
past five years.
Federation made no ac-
cusations of wrongdoing, but
officials wanted to know how
JHA put the community
money to use. Federation,
joined by a team of con-
sultants from the Coopers
and Lybrand accounting
firm, concluded that
substantial cuts in ad-
ministrative costs would
help the Home improve its
quality of care and financial
posture.
"We are very pleased with
the progress made by the
Home," said Federation
President Mark Schlussel.
"We are pleased that admin-
istrators changed the model
of their delivery system. We
are on the right road." ❑
