The best documentary I have seen about nursing homes.
7 March 2005 | by (Nova Scotia, Canada) – See all my reviews

I caught this documentary on the CBC (Canadian Broadcasting Corporation) in the Fall of 2004. It shows a good balance of opinions between the parents, and the children trying to send them to nursing homes.

The editing by John Kastner is very well done, and keeps up the pace in a documentary that could have so easily became tedious, especially with this being 3 hours long (albeit presented in 3 episodes).

The first episode dealt with siblings being separated, the second with a woman over 100 years old who still manages to stay happy, and the third episode is two separate stories about a man and a woman who refuse to be sent away.

A very good documentary 4 stars (out of 4)
