  • Aired: 03/24/2014

  • Rating: NR
As our loved ones near the end of their lives, the difficulty in comforting them reverberates in the lives of family members and caretakers: a woman with young children must find balance as she cares for her ailing mother; a look at the intimate bond between patient and caretaker; the story of a man who personifies “in sickness and in health”; and how the power of music can awaken sleeping minds.
