OTHER NONPROFIT ORGANIZATIONS:
"Caregiver Connections: Caring for Frail Seniors and Adults with Disabilities at Home." 15 minutes. INTERGeneration Links, Inc. "More and more individuals opening up their own homes to provide care for frail elders

William Benson. "Being part of a family, either your own family or of someone else's family, is more important to a person's health than even access to health care." -Elsie Fetterman, Ph.D.
"Caregivers" Making Dreams Come True." 12 minutes. INTERGeneration Links Inc., the University of Delaware, and the Helen F. Graham Foundation. People with disabilities have the same dreams that others do. They dream of working at a job that pays well, having a full social live, or vacationing in Hawaii.

INTERGeneration Links Inc., the University of Delaware, and the Helen F. Graham Foundation. It is tempting for caregivers to try to do everything for the people we care for.

A 57 minutes program directed by Cecilia Domeyko and supported by grants from the Ford Foundation and the Miranda Foundation of Mexico, this beautifully shot one-hour educational program in Spanish outlines how people can set up foundations and non-profit organizations to support the arts. Filled with a tremendous range of art Cuban street music, an all-woman orchestra performing new Cuban compositions in a beautiful basilica, sculptors, ceramacists, painters, classical and modern dancers, this lively program was shot under the most difficult circumstances, yet is emerging not only as a wonderful guide to funding the arts, but a work of art in its own right.
