COMMENT VISIONNER CE FILM ?

Soulever une personne âgée ou handicapée, la prendre dans ses bras, la déplacer. Lui tenir la main. L'encourager. Regarder l'heure, se dépêcher de partir, rouler, rouler. Arriver dans une nouvelle maison, chez une nouvelle personne. Préparer son repas, la laver, l'habiller. Sans indifférence ni mépris. Parler, rire, l'écouter. Sans "s'y attacher". Fermer la porte. Repartir. Recommencer encore et encore, ailleurs. Faire le ménage sans bousculer les vieilles photos. Accompagner une personne parfois jusqu'à la mort. Avec empathie et attention sans se perdre soi-même. Rentrer chez soi, retrouver les siens, parler, rire, discuter. Faire le ménage et la cuisine. Se coucher sans penser à… Comprendre la réalité d'un métier aussi difficile que mal connu, aussi méprisé qu'indispensable, en emboîtant le pas de quelques aides à domicile dans leur vie de tous les jours.

Helping an elderly or handicapped person to their feet, taking them in your arms, and helping them move from one spot to another. Holding their hand. Encouraging them. Watching the clock, hurrying to take to the road, rushing along. Arriving at a new residence, at a new patient's home. Preparing their meal, helping them to get washed and dressed. With no indifference or scorn. Talking, laughing, listening. Without "getting attached". Closing the door. Leaving. And then starting over and over again, in other places. Cleaning house without disturbing the old photographs. Keeping company with a person sometimes right up to death's door. With feeling and caring, and without losing your sense of self. Going home to find your family and friends, to talk, to laugh and share. Doing your housework and cooking. Going to bed without thinking about… Understanding the reality of a profession that is as difficult as it is misunderstood, as despised as it is necessary, by walking in the footsteps of several home support workers as they carry out their daily duties
