Caring at the End (#117)

Stories from North Carolina, California, and Ohio. As our loved ones near the end of their lives, the difficulty in comforting them reverberates in the lives of family members, caretakers, and communities: a woman with young children of her own must find balance as she cares for her ailing mother; a look at the intimate bond between patient and caretaker; the story of a man who personifies "in sickness and in health"; and how the power of music can awaken sleeping minds.
