Deirdre Fishel and Tony Heriza shine a light on the relationships at the heart of in-home caregiving.

Care doc flyerwith Spanish subtitles. CARE, by Deirdre Fishel and Tony Heriza, shines a light on the relationships at the heart of the most supportive and sustainable long-term care option that we have: paid in-home caregiving. 90% of Americans wish to age at home but many cannot depend exclusively on their family and friends for their needs and so they rely on the critical, compassionate and skilled services of paid care workers. Shown through the eyes of both care workers and their clients, CARE illuminates the complexities of care work, as well as the life-changing attachments that often develop between care workers and those who receive it. The film urges viewers to consider the many barriers that keep people from doing this admirable work and others from receiving the care they need and deserve.
