Caregiver A Love Story Sponsored By Lumina

About the film:

"Caregiver: A Love Story is the tale of one man struggling to care for his dying wife. 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.

This film highlights an essential, yet largely unseen workforce - the family caregivers of America, and challenges viewers to acknowledge the growing strain placed on them.

We must find another way."

The discussion panel will be comprised of caregiving support professionals including Lumina social worker, chaplain, and caregiver programs coordinator.

This film screening and discussion panel are part of Lumina's Illuminating Series, a monthly seminar every third Tuesday with experts who speak on various "life" topics such as healthy aging, caregiving, bereavement, and other end-of-life issues.
