Mission Hospice – Caregiver: A Love Story screening and discussion
June 24 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Part of Mission Hospice’s FREE series of films about how we live and die.
Caregiver: A Love Story
While most documentary films about death focus on people who are dying, Caregiver: A Love Story directs our attention to the millions of family caregivers who support them at home. When 59-year-old Bambi decides to forgo further treatment for her cancer and die at home, her husband Rick leaves his job to become her primary caregiver — a role for which he has no experience and little support.
Caregiver: A Love Story challenges viewers to acknowledge the growing strain placed on family caregivers and to envision a new approach.
Dr. Zitter practices critical and palliative care medicine at a public hospital in Oakland, California. She is a passionate advocate for humanism in medicine, utilizing her broad platform as a speaker, writer, and producer of media.
