Smaller Jewish homes for the aged, which give medical care to elderly patients too infirm to live on their own, yet too healthy for hospital care, need to give the same degree of care as larger homes, yet suffer from a relative lack of availability of funds. While finding increased ways to access funding should be part of the long-range planning of these organizations, in the short term, small homes must utilize all of the possible resources, including professional services, volunteers, recreational, cultural, religious, and educational activities and services available in their local community. By using these resources to fill gaps in the services provided by the home, the home will be better able to serve the needs of its residents and the community at large, while involving the community and demonstrating to other organizations various projects that ought to receive funding.
