Jewish Healthcare Foundation and WQED to Premiere New End-of-Life Documentary
May 26, 2011
Everyone has a story. We can all look back on our lives and break them down into "chapters." The same holds true for patients with a life-limiting illness who are living out – or thinking about – their last chapter. This one-hour documentary will take you inside the hospital, hospice, homes and lives of palliative and hospice care recipients and providers. Explore medical, ethical, practical and spiritual issues from a variety of perspectives and discover how patients and families are taking an active role in their own end-of-life planning. "The Last Chapter" airs Thursday, June 30 at 7:30 p.m. on WQED-TV.
