News from Aging, Posted on Thu, 10/22/2015 - 10:38am

November is National Caregiver Month and in honor of this, the Cattaraugus County Department of Aging/NY Connects will sponsor viewing of the documentary “Being Mortal.” This documentary explores the intersection of life, death, medicine and what matters in the end. The narrator, Dr. Atul Gawande, shares four different stories of individuals who were at the end of their lives and how he and other physicians approached dealing with treatment versus quality of life.


The first showing will be held at Healthy Community Alliance in Gowanda on Monday, November 9, 2015, at 6:00 pm. The second showing will be held at the Olean Public Library in Olean on Monday, November 23, 2015, at 6:00 pm. A question and discussion period will be held after the conclusion of the film.


To register for the event, please contact Stacy Lockwood at the Cattaraugus County Department of the Aging/NY Connects at (716) 373-8032.
