Free film explores friendship, caregiving

“Miss You Already” will be shown on Oct. 13 at the Grand Cinema in Tacoma in the latest offering by Pierce County Aging and Disability Resources of free films about caregiving.

The theater is located at 606 S. Fawcett Ave. in Tacoma. The screening is scheduled to begin at 10:45 a.m., 15 minutes after the  doors open. Complimentary popcorn will be provided by Advanced Healthcare. Tickets must be reserved online through Brown Paper Tickets or by calling Aging and Disability Resources at 253-798-4600.  

“Miss You Already” centers on two women who as best friends have shared everything since they were kids — secrets, clothes, laughs, substances and boyfriends. As adults, one has a great job and lives in a townhouse with her family. The other has a less glamorous job and lives with her boyfriend on a houseboat in London. Although their friendship is rock solid, it is put to the test when life throws them curveballs that affect their health and happiness.

Aging and Disability Resources, a service of Pierce County government, is sponsoring free films as part of its Family Caregiver Support program. The program helps unpaid family caregivers with education, counseling, adaptive equipment, housework, errands and respite care for families of all income levels.
