Don't Take My Sunshine Away

Top of page

Retired people today are living longer, healthier lives than ever before, challenging stereotypes of what it means to be old. Don't Take My Sunshine Away addresses the vital issue of elder care by presenting model support programs in Sweden, Denmark, England, the United States and Canada. Focusing on the older people themselves, this sensitive documentary film explores ways of providing necessary care without undermining self-respect. In the process, it challenges us to consider the future of our ageing society.
