Nursing Home Documentary Shows What Life Is Like For Millions

The Patron Saints (Trailer) from Pigeon Projects on Vimeo.

I still recall my first visit to a nursing home— the smells, the furnishings, the medical equipment— and yes, the people!  While many of us have visited familiy or friends at a nursing home, we really have little appreciation for what life is like when the visitors go home.

A new documentary premeiring at the Toronto Film Festival aims to give us an idea of what nursing home life is really about.  Created by Brian Cassiday and Melanie Shatzky, the film promises to be a real eye opener.  While I won’t be able to attend the festival, I look forward to its broader distribution.

Justia Lawyer Rating for Jonathan Rosenfeld

Client Reviews

★★★★★
Jonathan did a great job helping my family navigate through a lengthy lawsuit involving my grandmother's death in a nursing home. Through every step of the case, Jonathan kept my family informed of the progression of the case. Although our case eventually settled at a mediation, I really was impressed at how well prepared Jonathan was to take the case to trial. Lisa

After I read Jonathan’s Nursing Home Blog, I decided to hire him to look into my wife’s treatment at a local nursing home. Jonathan did a great job explaining the process and the laws that apply to nursing homes. I immediately felt at ease and was glad to have him on my side. Though the lawsuit process was at times frustrating, Jonathan reassured me, particularly at my deposition. I really felt like Jonathan cared about my wife’s best interests, and I think that came across to the lawyers for the nursing home. Eric
