Hospice of Michigan Screens End-of-Life Documentary

Caregiver Resource Network

November is National Family Caregiver Month.  And, the Caregiver Resource Network is holding a month-long series of free events to help caregivers along in their journey.

As part of the November series, Hospice of Michigan will host a free screening of its powerful documentary on the end of life, “Except for Six,” on Saturday, Nov. 3.
The nationally recognized leader in end-of-life care will screen the hour-long film at 2:30 p.m. at Wealthy Street Theatre, 1130 Wealthy Street SE.  A panel discussion will follow the film, which is free and open to the public.
Panelists will include:
• Henry Holstege, a retired sociology professor from Calvin College who is featured in the film and the co-author of Growing Older in America and Caring for Aging Loved Ones.
• Dr. Khan Nedd, executive director of the African-American Health Institute
• Katherine Morrison, operations manager for Hospice of Michigan
• Chaplain Laurie Stagge, spiritual care advisor for Hospice of Michigan
• Jerry Snoeyink, Hospice of Michigan volunteer and former caregiver
Written, directed and produced by a team from Hospice of Michigan, “Except for Six” tells the story of three patients in the last six months of their lives, tracing the challenges that they and their families face in coming to terms with death. The 2007 film was an official selection of the Michigan Film Festival and was shown on PBS stations around the country.

The Caregiver Resource Network was formed in 2001, and is a collaboration of the Hospice of Michigan and 100+ other West Michigan organizations dedicated to providing for the needs and welfare of family and professional caregivers within the community.
