Being Mortal Documentary Presentation
SeniorCare Inc. presents Being Mortal, on Tuesday, June 12, 2018 at the Residence at Riverbend, located at 149 County Road in Ipswich, MA. The doors open at 5:30pm for a social period with appetizers, and the film will start at 6:00pm. The film will be followed by a discussion. This presentation is sponsored by The Residence at Riverbend with additional support from Tufts Health Plan Foundation.
Two years in the making, Being Mortal explores the relationships between doctors and patients nearing the end of life, and shows how many doctors – including Gawande – struggle to talk honestly and openly with their patients who are dying. From the Indian hometown of Gawande’s father, whose prolonged dying process catalyzed Gawande’s quest to better understand end-of-life care, to the bedsides of patients in Boston who are navigating the ends of their lives, Being Mortal is an intimate and revealing journey with relevance to us all.
There is no charge to attend this presentation. However, seating is limited and advance reservations are required.
