This video examines caregiving in a warm and caring manner chronicling the increase in caregiving which results from advances in medical technology. Individuals survive for years with diseases and chronic conditions that would have resulted in death only a few years earlier. The benefits of medical advances have created a new population of persons in need of care as well as a new population of caregivers. Many, if not most of us, will be in both roles during our lifetime—caregiver and cared-for. Joe Mantegna hosts and narrates.

Diversity

Practice


Expressing and receiving affection, companionship and love, are things that we all crave. Yet there is a common misconception that our needs for intimacy and romance fade as we grow older. This film actively challenges the cultural assumptions that along with age comes a disinterest in sex and intimacy. It reminds us that sexuality remains a part of our lives until the very end.

The men and women, couples and singles profiled in this documentary openly share their experiences with love, romance and growing old. Their discussion of the place of sexuality in their lives is in vivid counterpoint to society's perceptions of sex among the Elderly. As Time Goes By shows us a community of vital, social people who want what most of us want: love and affection, whether it takes the form of hand-holding, cuddling, or intercourse. Perhaps the way these seniors see themselves will change the way we see them and, eventually, how we see ourselves.

Policy


Big Mama follows 18 months in the lives of Viola Dees, an African American grandmother, and Walter, her grandson, as she tries to raise him alone in South Central Los Angeles. Dees has taken care of Walter since the age of four, when his father (Viola's son) died. Walter appears in the documentary as bright and sweetly loving to his grandmother, but also profoundly troubled, affected by his mother's prenatal drug intake. In the documentary, Walter is nine, and Dees is turning 90.
The film focuses on the continuous battle against age discrimination faced by Dees and many like her. While contending with her own declining health and a bureaucratic and legal system that continually threatens to force them apart, Dees fights the misconception that age supersedes one's ability to love and care for a child.

Winner of the 73rd Documentary Short Subject Academy Award.

They are a generation of children whose parents have essentially vanished, lost to drug abuse, incarceration, mental illness and other social problems. Filling the void for an estimated 4.5 million of these American kids are their grandparents, often forced into duty armed with few resources beyond their wisdom and devotion. In a powerful hour-long report, 'Primetime Live' explores the stories of four of these families living in Newark, New Jersey, a city that has one of the nation's highest concentrations of youth being reared by grandparents -- many in poverty and with little outside help. For nearly four years, 'Primetime' has followed these families' struggles. Cynthia McFadden talks with the children about their parents' absence, and speaks with the grandmothers about their remarkable efforts and why they think this troubling cycle of abandonment and broken lives continues.

This entertaining documentary is an honest look at five culturally diverse couples married for fifty years or longer. For Better or For Worse attempts to answer questions that focus on issues of long-term commitments. In candid interviews, each couple discusses their private lives, covering the good and bad times during their relationships. In addition to how they met, each couple openly discusses sensitive topics such as their devotion to each other, sex, Alzheimer's disease, life and death. Drawing on rich storehouses of wisdom, they share stories of their journeys that range from living room jam sessions, to a gay pride parade, to an off-Broadway gay theatre in New York, and the backwoods of northern California. Reflecting on the diversity and fullness of the American experience, their comments offer insight into what is one of the most rewarding undertakings in life, for better or for worse.

History

Based on the best-selling book by Sarah L. Delany and A. Elizabeth Delany with Amy Hill Hearth, which was later adapted into a Broadway play, Having Our Say tells the true story of the Delany Sisters, two African-American women who were fathered by a former slave, went on to attend college, and witnessed the slow but steady advance of civil rights in America before a reporter for The New York Times sat down with them to record their story. In the film version, 103-year-old Sadie (Diahann Carroll) is a polite and soft-spoken woman who deals cheerfully with the questions of journalist Amy Hill Hearth (Amy Madigan). Sadie's considerably more feisty 101-year-old sister (and housemate) Bessie (Ruby Dee) grumbles about "white people who ask you to explain the obvious to them," but soon adds her own stories as the Delanys discuss their quietly remarkable lives as career women and racial pioneers who not only survived Jim Crow laws, they outlived Jim Crow, as well. Produced for CBS Television, Having Our Say was first aired April 18, 1999. Incidentally, Bessie Delany died in 1995 at age 104, while Sadie, at 110, passed on in 1999, only a few months before this was first aired.

Academy Award-nominated LEGACY is the unflinching chronicle of one family's triumphant journey out of poverty and despair. Touchingly narrated by Nickcole Collins, a teenage girl wise beyond her years, the film follows the Collins family over five years as they slowly pull themselves out of a haze of poverty, drug addiction, and violence that plagues their public housing project in Chicago.
Stereotype-busting and open-minded, LEGACY paints the American Dream in honest colors to rousing effect. Improbably, the senseless killing of 14-year-old Terrell, a straight-A student and role model for the neighborhood, spurs the family to seek a better life against impossible odds. Nickcole's mother, a high school dropout, moves in fits and starts to find a meaningful job. Aunt Wanda, mother of Terrell and longtime crack addict, enrolls herself in a drug treatment program. Nickcole catapults herself out of the inner-city trap to a college degree and a comfortable life. It's impossible not to cheer for these incredible real-life people as they cry and laugh, stumble and get back up again on their way to something better.

Although many cultures venerate their elders, looking to them as living repositories of wisdom and experience, America, with its "forever young" self-image, does not. Lacking societal support, how are Americans supposed to age well—to grow older with grace and understanding—and make life’s final decades a meaningful experience? This program features the stories of exemplary individuals who, despite the inhospitable social climate, are growing older with courage and dignity. The video is similar to Living Longer . . . . Living Better. Focus is more on what seniors have to offer.
