With the older population growing and living longer, Roger Weisberg examines the alternatives to institutional care. This video advocates home care over institutions and focuses on three examples across the country to make its point. Narrated by Helen Hayes, this documentary goes from New York City to rural Appalachia and on to San Francisco to raise awareness to the possibility that elder care can be more humane and that a long life can be more worthwhile.
