[ARCHIVED] Care...What will it look like, who will provide it? FREE documentary screening

CAREpeople

Care...What will it look like, who will provide it? These questions are answered in the documentary, Care. Providing quality care for an aging population will require reimagining how we value and compensate care workers and how we support families who need their services. The 65-minute documentary, Care, offers a rare and intimate glimpse into the people who make up our currently struggling system of paid home health care in the US as told through the eyes of both paid caregivers and their elderly clients.

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. Care raises critical questions to invite dialogue and engagement—before we hit a care crisis.

A short Q&A session will follow the film screening.

Wednesday, July 12, 2017 at the UW-Parkside Cinema at the Student Center, 930 Wood Road, Kenosha. Doors open at 5:30 p.m., film begins at 6:00 p.m. Admission is FREE.
