"Almost Home", a feature length documentary, originally aired on PBS, chronicles a year in the life of a retirement community making the effort to radically change the culture in order to better serve the needs of their residents. This documentary tells the unflinchingly honest stories of couples both bonded and divided by disability and dementia,children torn between caring for their parents and their children, nursing assistants doing unsavory work for poverty wages, and a visionary nursing home director committed to transforming his century-old hospital-like institution into a true home. This event is being hosted by Summit Place of Anderson. RSVP by April 21st.
