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.
