If getting old isn’t for wimps, neither is taking care of the elderly – and a sense of humor helps no matter where you are on the continuum of care.
TAPIT/new works Ensemble Theater explores the feelings, facts, heart and humor behind caregiving in Take Care, a new multi-disciplinary production.
The play, inspired by real-life caregivers, explores the relationships which develop between a member of the “Sandwich Generation” and her mother’s caregivers as they try to navigate the physical, emotional and institutional terrain of aging in America.
While the story is fictional, it's based on workshops and interviews with more than 300 caregivers, social workers, older adults, agency staff, Hospice workers and family members, conducted around the country.
The production features Sheri Williams Pannell, Nedra Bobo, Donna Peckett, Danielle Dresden.
