Hospice Chronicles

Over the course of eight months, Long Haul followed two hospice volunteers through their training and first assignments in patients’ homes. Trained to provide “respite care,” the volunteers set out to give family members a break from their caretaking responsibilities. And while one has a chance to reflect on her patient’s life in a intimate setting, another gets to explore death in a rather unexpected way – a way that training never could have prepared him for.
