Adventures in Caring

Best known for its local all-volunteer Raggedy Ann and Andy Patient Care Program, the Adventures in Caring Foundation is celebrating the release of its latest video production, Compassion in Action, with a premiere screening on Thursday, November 30 at 4 p.m. at the Karpeles Manuscript Library Museum. Based on real-life footage from local hospitals and nursing homes, the film shows healthcare pros facing the challenges of communicating with heart, especially in difficult conversations with patients and their families, and demonstrates how compassion is a learnable skill for turning stressful situations into opportunities for understanding and healing. Compassion in Action builds on material presented in the earlier, award-winning Adventures in Caring release, The Medicine of Compassion. For more info, visit, or call Simon Fox at 962-4500 x2.
