Enjoy a free screening of “Beginning with the End,” an intergenerational film following the real-life stories of four high school students who learned about caring for hospice patients and their families.
What would it be like to befriend an older adult in his or her final days? In 2002, nine Rochester, NY, high school seniors attended a new class called “Hospice” in which they provided comfort care for the dying and their families.
“Beginning with the End” is a film about four of those students’ transformative experiences in that class. This intergenerational film will be screened in UCCS’s Kraemer Family Library. Colin Mossbrook, who was one of those student volunteers, will be on hand to provide an overview of the film and respond to questions, and Sara Qualls, Director of the Aging Center, will speak briefly about the work of the Aging Center. All ages are encouraged to attend.
Free campus parking will be available in Lot 224, and refreshments will be provided.
