photo A Set of Two Programs
My Mother, My Father Series
By Jim Vanden Bosch

When a parent grows old, it often falls to their adult children to provide care for them. These celebrated documentaries take a candid look at families and their deep and often conflicting feelings as they deal with the stresses involved in caring for an aging parent.

In My Mother, My Father we meet four families dealing with an aging parent. One family has chosen to have the husband's father, who has Alzheimer's disease, live with them, while others have chosen either nursing home care or some level of in-home support. Study Guide included. Available on a single DVD

My Mother, My Father...Seven Years Later checks in with each family seven years after the original filming - to explore changes over the years in family dynamics and caregiving needs. The caregivers reflect on their own aging, and on their plans for when they become dependent on others.
