On September 5th, at 9:00 pm, the local PBS affiliate (KCTS) will air a documentary about caregivers and the people who need home care on the show America Reframed. The film promises to discuss the many challenges faced by both the providers and receivers of home care in the US.
The film’s website states:
“Care pulls back the curtain on the poignant and largely hidden world of in-home elder care. Beautifully shot and deeply moving, the film reveals the deep bonds that form between paid care workers and elders while exposing the cracks in the U.S. care system. ”
We realize that 9:00 pm may be a bit late for people and we hope to organize a community screening as part of our efforts to launch our cooperative.
