Discussion of Mr. Alexander's Paper

By Nathan Berman

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Social Welfare, June 1948

This piece comments on "The Old Age Home in the Total Community Plan -- From the Standpoint of the Small and Intermediate Cities." The piece highlights how the experiences of the Joseph and Annie Borinstein Home for the Jewish Aged of Indianapolis fully justified a close working relationship with a social service agency and membership in a well functioning federation and community fund set-up. The author finds that the soundest way to deal with the problem of the aged is to look at it from a community-wide point of view, using a home as only one of the facilities to serve the needs of the aged.
