  • Summary

Hospice is a place where terminally ill people go to live and be cared for until they die. This documentary follows the staff and patients of Wells House as they face the ups and downs of palliative care and dying. The nurses face staff shortages, funding cuts, compassion fatigue, and the inevitable grief over beloved patients. Many of the patients face death estranged from their families due to sexuality, drug use, or AIDS diagnoses.
