A powerful show, talking with the Interim Executive Director and Clinical Director of Addison County Home Health and Hospice about the organization, focusing especially upon advanced directives – documents that allow people to make decisions about medical treatments and interventions they might receive toward the end of their life. Sherry describes how composing such a document can promote a process in keeping with your values, and relieve stress and conflict among those you care for, clarifying your wishes as they struggle to negotiate profound decisions in a time of tremendous grief. Though the topic is challenging, the discussion is vibrant and touches upon issues we should all be considering and talking about, no matter our age or health. Recorded 6/23/16.

In an hour, view the whole process of construction of Middlebury’s new Town Offices. The weather and traffic are pretty interesting as well. Let us know if you see any interesting tidbits, like the car pulled over by the police on the center of the roundabout one night, or the times the cleaning crew came in and turned on the lights, which reflected the camera back at itself! Thanks to the Vermont Folklife Center for hosting our camera in the window these many months. Produced by Middlebury Community Television, 6/21/16.
