PBS will premiere a new documentary on caregiving, "Caring for Mom & Dad" on May 7th (check local listings for times). The documentary seeks to answer the questions of caregiving and explore the everyday emotional, health, and financial challenges that caregivers face.
Narrated by Meryl Streep, the film tells the stories of caregiving families and their experiences. The film will be available for online streaming within 24 hours of the premiere.

It didn't air in L.A. or Orange County last night, either.

I didn't watch. I have heard that some employers are allowing time for family caregivers. And plus, I applied for a position a few weeks ago, had my caregiving for the past four years right out there and within about five days heard I had made the first cut. Then just a bit ago got another email that I made the second cut. Two more phases to go. Please let this work out for me!

Is the one you're referring to narrated by Merril Streep. If so, that's the one.

I didn't watch the credits to see when it was made. The one that was advertised is the one that is available at PBS now. It lasted a little over 54 min. Is it the one you watched? It was very heartening to me to see that some employers are starting to allow time for family caregivers. I thought that was great.

There was no mention of another episode. I don't know if this one episode was it or not. The stories were so similar to the ones we hear in the group, but there was nothing about elders who weren't so nice. And, of course, there was no mention of poop.

I'm watching it now on Anthony and it is so real. I hope everyone can watch.

Okay -- it is online. Google PBS Caring for Mom and Dad. The first link that I got was the live stream. I didn't click it yet, but I am about to... or as we say here in the South, I'm fixin' to.

PBS is supposed to stream it online, too. It will probably be on their website and perhaps on Hulu, too. They wrote it would be the day after the premier, but I'm beginning to wonder what that day really is. I'll let you know when I find it somewhere.
