Independent Lens Episode: "Almost Home"

Episode Synopsis: “Almost Home,” by directors Brad Lichtenstein and Lisa Gildehaus, is a somber look inside a Wisconsin nursing home. “We need to remember the spirit as well as the body,” says administrator John George. However, the residents' struggles with mental and physical challenges and staffers' occasional clashes with each other poignantly illustrate the difficulties of living in an assisted-care facility.
