Event description

Description

Blue Roses is an inspiring documentary film about Bob Jamison and other frontline community health workers who provide care for Ottawa's inner-city rooming house residents, who often face poverty, addiction and mental illness. In the process, they challenge our conventional understanding of palliative (end of life) care.

The film provides a fascinating and poignant look at life in rooming houses and the difficulties in providing palliative care to this invisible community. It captures the compelling, and often heart breaking, challenges that Bob and others with lived experience face in bringing kindness and a voice to their community.

Attend this free screening of the documentary Blue Roses, followed by an informative discussion involving people with lived experience, frontline health workers and city councillor(s) about rooming houses and palliative care for people experiencing poverty, mental illness and addictions.

Donations at the door are very welcome and will be used to support health and wellness initiatives for frontline community health workers.
