& The Defense of Our Elderly and Panel of Homecare and Disabled Care Workers
Care by director Deirdre Fishel tells the story of home elder care and the homecare workers who do the work to protect our elderly. The humanity of both the elderly and disabled and their caregivers gives the film strength and shows the living reality for a growing part of our population. Millions of seniors need this care and the workers who do this job. These workers are doing critical public work, yet, are underpaid, many struggling to survive themselves.
A panel discussion follows after the film:
Brett Miller, SEIU 1021; Brad Wiedmaier, SEIU Local 2015 California long term care; moderated by David Duckworth SEIU 1021.
