“The Remaining Light” is a documentary film about how we care for seniors. The documentary interviews seniors, living in their own homes or in residential care homes, who talk about the community-based services that are important to them. It features the stories of seniors and their famiies and explores themes related to dignity, preventing illness and social isolation and keeping health care costs under control as the boomer generation ages.

Afterwards, speakers will be Alice Edge, co-chair of the BC Health Coalition and Marci Cohen who played a major part in the production of the film. The speakers will be followed by a question and answer period.
