Almost Home is a highly acclaimed, intimate PBS documentary that takes you inside a year-in-the-life of a nursing home trying to implement culture change. Viewers will follow honest stories of couples, both bonded and divided by disability and dementia; children torn between caring for their parents and caring for their children; nursing assistants doing juggling difficult work at home and at the job; healthy elders fearful of moving to the dreaded nursing home; and a visionary nursing home director committed to transforming his century-old hospital-like institution into a true home. Almost Home DVD provides education and training on the topic of Culture Change in any setting. It's a candid and moving case study.
