Video in a Hospice Setting
Paula Church works with hospice patients to document their thoughts, memories and stories. They are veterans, mill workers, and housewives, all who lived ordinary lives, many with shared memories of a Pittsburgh gone by. They all have one thing in common: they are facing the end of their life. She will share some of the extraordinary stories that she has documented and talk about the experience of being a documentarian in the hospice realm.
Paula is an RN who has worked at Family Hospice and Palliative Care for the past 6 years, documenting patients’ lives through photography and video.
