All old people are not the same. &Spaces must be designed to satisfy human need and aspiration, not to meet building code requirements or health department minimal standards. Codes tend to mandate minimums for environments, not norms which enhance and increase functional capacity in a humane environment. 4.A positive environment must be pro- ,. vided to meet the sensory deficiances III I BALABAN'S Now Enjoy A Delicious All You Can Eat SALAD BAR At All 3 Locations 112 Bank St - Mcdmal Tuwer Rtces Nachmans L (sight, hearing, etc.), limited mobility, reduced agility, and the lessened physical strength of older adult. The environment needs to compen- sate for some of the losses due to aging and still, wherever possible, allow the older resident to function with as much independence as pos- sible. 5.A major consideration requires that the environment focus on the present and future mental capability of the older adult. As a resident of the home, capability and function would not remain constant but would be subject to change. The design there- fore had to consider gradual loss of function and assure continuing self- reliant opportunities wherever pos- sible. 6.And finally, the long term care facility Sharon Street Diane Narducci Thelma Sapp Rose White Lorraine Baker Sharon Murphy Kathy Kinn Marian Hynes Joyce Ryder b Formerly of Taylor Burgess Hairstyling are now serving you at ShearClass 515 Birdneck Shops Mon. 8:30 - 4:30 Birdneck Road Tues. - Fri. 8:30 - 9:30 Va.

The instructions given in the Torah for the construction of the Mishkan -- the Tabernacle -- are clear, but are not completely understandable. Why were our forefathers' instructed to use silver and brass as well as gold? Why was the Tabernacle not constructed completely out of gold? What was the function of the less precious metals, silver and brass, when enough gold was available to do the whole job? The question becomes even more pertinent when considering the Talmudic principle: "There shall be no poverty in a place of wealth." -- a principle best illustrated by the Talmudic instruction to use agold vessel for watering animals about to be sacrificed on the altar. Consider the situation: The instruction to use a gold cup for watering a beast was to be obeyed not only in the desert, but also in the Holy Temples; not only in Solomon's but also (Continued on page 5) as part of its humane mission must preserve wherever possible the resi- dents' sense of independence and the power to control as many aspects of their fives as possible. In addition to the concepualization in de- sign, the committee affirmed the following in designing the social, psychological and program elements of Beth Sholom Home of Eastern Virginia: 1.The importance of maintaining the individual's identity through the con- stant reinforcement of a positive concept of one's self. 2.The availability of love and affec- tional physical contact. 3 The development of meaningful and creative activity which gives pur- pose to life. 4.Continued reinforcement of self re- fiance, a sense of independence by a development of a physical environ- ment which supports independence. 5.Assurance that design and program, hand in hand, provide stimulation, curiousity arousal, and excitement in living. 6.The provision of a safe, dignified, efficient environment which pro- vides opportunity for both social interaction and for privacy. 7.The provision of environmental and program cues to keep track of time, to differentiate one day from another, to be oriented wherever possible to temporal changes. 8.Creating opportunities to reflect on the past as a means of understanding one's self in preparation for the future, and to allow this to happen in an environment which ensures protection, caring, and concern. The Building Committee Chairman Jack Barr and others who went on the site visits were: Melvin Bass, Mindy Futterman, Larry Goldman, Richard Porter, Phyllis Newfield, Morton Goldmeier, Laszlo Aranyi, Dennis Bmmberg and Ira Robbins. Their experiences enabled them to arrive at the aforementioned philosophy of design and program.
