TAMPA, Fla., Jan. 20, 2021 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Caregiver: A Love Story is a new documentary film by Dr. Jessica Zitter, is shining a light on the challenges caregivers face when caring for loved ones. Healthcare providers and content providers can view the film at no cost on Docola's care communication platform from January 23rd through the 26th. They can also attend a live Q&A session with Dr. Zitter on January 26th at 8pm/ET 5pm/PT.
This 24 minute documentary shows what's hidden in plain sight — the physical, emotional, and financial toll caregiving takes. Bambi Fass and her husband Rick take us through the joys and sorrows, and help us ask: how we might better care for family caregivers so they don't become second order patients?
The event is supported by four organizations who are focused on improving healthcare for patients and families. Eran Kabakov, Chief Executive Officer of Docola, says: "We are thrilled to host this event. I've experienced the difficulties of caregiving on a personal level as well as a healthcare provider. Dr. Zitter's work with this film is so powerful, and Bambi and Rick Fass are both candid and inspiring. We hope clinicians take the opportunity to watch the film and join the Q&A session to learn more about the challenge family caregivers face."
