to the music at Prentis Manor.

t wasn't your standard sock hop.
But residents of Prentis Manor in
Southfield and Fleischman Resi-
dence in West Bloomfield enjoyed
a dance last week sponsored by the
Jewish Home for Aged and its
Auxiliary.
About 50 residents of the two fa-
cilities danced — or just swayed
— to waltzes, cha-cha and swing
music provided by Joe Cornell
Dance Studio. Staff from Prentis
Manor turned the home's dining
room into "Prentis Ballroom" with
balloons, streamers and a sweet

table.
Half of Prentis' frail elderly partici-
pated in the event.
Prentis has a special activity month-
ly or bi-monthly, in addition to 6-7 dai-
ly programs. Said one elderly resident
about the dance, "Some of these people
haven't smiled like that in years." Fleis-
chman resident Ruth Feig, who had lit-
tle trouble finding dance partners, said,
"This is wonderful."
Prentis staff, the Home for Aged Aux-
iliary, and family members helped out
at the event, which was coordinated by
Project JOIN intern Caryn Lubetsky. El
