NYC PREMIERE As our population ages, the need for health care also rises. For those who wish to remain in their homes, the kind of in-depth, personal connection provided by compassionate caregivers is essential. Care follows three of these workers, uncovering the failures of the U.S. eldercare system, which finds caregivers earning poverty wages and their clients struggling to afford essential services.

This screening is co-presented by:  Caring Across Generations, National Domestic Workers Alliance and 1199

Screening with Larry Locke’s Stepping Up. Musicians and their families attempt to balance the roles of artist, caregiver and patient.
