    Care – A Documentary Film

    Showing of the documentary film “Care.” Tickets can be reserved by calling 610-332-3378 or in person at the ArtsQuest Center Box Office

    Film Summary:

    Through personal stories, Care reveals the deep humanity and poignancy of care work, as well as the challenges faced by elders, their families and their care workers. It also reveals the beginning of a movement to improve how we care—both for the growing number of older adults and for those who make their lives livable.

    At a moment of great division in our country, Care highlights an issue that affects us all – urban and rural, immigrant and native born, red state and blue. Providing quality care for an aging population will require re-imagining how we value and compensate care workers and how we support families who need their services.

    Time: 7:15 pm

    Location: Frank Banko Alehouse Cinemas ArtsQuest Center
