The Association of Baltimore Area Grantmakers is pleased to join the University of Maryland School of Social Work, the Public Justice Center and other partners to co-host a screening the of the award-winning documentary Care

This film pulls back the curtain on the poignant and largely hidden world of in-home elder care. Beautifully shot and deeply moving, the film reveals the deep bonds that form between paid care workers and elders while exposing the cracks in the U.S. care system. Through personal stories, Care reveals the deep humanity and poignancy of care work, as well as the challenges faced by elders, their families and their care workers. It also reveals the beginning of a movement to improve how we care—both for the growing number of older adults and for those who make their lives livable.

At a moment of great division in our country, Care highlights an issue that affects us all – urban and rural, immigrant and native born, red state and blue. Providing quality care for an aging population will require reimagining how we value and compensate care workers and how we support families who need their services.

Please join your peers to view the film and a community dialogue around the issues facing those who receive care and their families, as well as the workers who provide the care.

Admission is free, but registration is strongly encouraged. Please email Jennifer Pelton by October 19, 2017 to register.
