 Pemi-Baker Hospice & Home Health Presents:
'Caregiver, a Love Story' Film Showing and Q&A Discussion
By anna swanson
PLYMOUTH – Pemi-Baker Hospice & Home Health is thrilled to invite the commu- nity to a special film showing of 'Caregiver, a Love Story' followed by a thought-provok- ing question and answer ses- sion with a panel consisting of a Hospice Registered Nurse, Hospice Medical Director, Spiritual Care Counselor, and Social Work professionals. This event is open to the public and will take place on Wednesday, November 15th, from 4:30 PM to 5:30 PM at the Boulder Point Community Room of Speare Primary Care at Health Place, located at 103 Boulder Point Drive, Plymouth, NH.
'Caregiver, a Love Story' is a poignant 25-minute documen- tary that delves into the life of a 59-year-old woman named Bambi and her devoted hus- band, who becomes her primary caregiver after Bambi chooses to discontinue further cancer treatments. The film provides an intimate and heartfelt look at the challenges and moments of tenderness that Bambi and her husband experience as they confront the reality of her im- pending mortality.
Susan Varnum, Pemi-Bak- er's Home Care, Palliative Care & Hospice Director, expressed her enthusiasm for the event, stating, "This film gives us a re- alistic glimpse inside what home
hospice looks like and can ini- tiate discussions we have now with ourselves and others about what matters most to us if we were in Bambi or her husband's shoes. Our expert panel, which includes our Hospice Medical Director, will be available to answer questions related to hos- pice care and what matters most
to you."
The film screening and ques-
tion and answer (Q&A) session are open to anyone interested in learning more about the invalu- able services offered by hospice care providers and the profound impact it can have on the lives of patients and their loved ones. It's an opportunity to gain in- sight into the challenges, emo- tions, and ultimately the love that often defines the caregiving journey.
Attendees are encouraged to ask questions, share their own experiences, and engage in meaningful conversations about the importance of end-of-life care and the choices individuals make during such critical mo- ments in their lives.

the quality of life for individuals facing terminal illnesses. Pemi- Baker Hospice & Home Health has been a trusted provider of hospice and home health ser- vices in the area, since 1967; dedicated to providing excep- tional care and support to pa- tients and their families during difficult times.
