Important Film About End Of Life Care – In Limited Release in West Coast Theaters September 30
Cameo Role by Accredited Vice-President of Clinical Services Robyn Shenkman, RN
Accredited Home Care President Barry Berger said,
“Accredited Home Care consulted in making this movie about a home care nurse and the demons he is fighting while treating his patients. Our Vice President of Clinical Services was on the set to help authenticate the patient-nurse interactions. She also had a small cameo in the film. Some of the scenes were filmed at our corporate offices. If you are one of my home care social media friends I urge you to check this film out.”
The following synopsis comes from the movie’s website cited above.
“Haunted by the burden of his past, a dedicated home care nurse isolates himself within the intensely personal relationships he forms with his terminally ill patients.
David is an in-home nurse who works with terminally ill patients. Efficient and dedicated to his profession, David develops strong, even intimate, relationships with each person he cares for. But outside of his work, David is ineffectual, awkward, and reserved – effects of his chronic depression – and he needs each patient as much as they need him. Having long carried a burden of guilt and remorse, David must face his past in order to heal.”
Accredited Home Care’s Vice-President of Clinical Services, Robyn Shenkman, RN, plays a doctor in this important film and we encourage everyone to go see the movie soon.
End of life care is an important part of the healthcare system in the United States and Accredited Home Care staff have had the privilege of providing both in-home caregiving services and skilled nursing services to hundreds of hospice patients throughout Southern California. It is our honor to bring this announcement to you in remembrance of those patients and their families.
