October 2, 2022: Unseen Documentary Georgia Premiere
Life House Atlanta Hosted the Georgia Premiere of the documentary, Unseen: How We’re Failing Parent Caregivers and Why It Matters, at the Springs Cinema & Taphouse to a full theater.
“An estimated 16.8 million people in the US are caring for a child with disabilities or complex medical needs.
The demands of daily life and chronic stress can take a heavy toll on the mental and physical wellbeing of caregivers.”
– Unseen Caregiver Documentary
The Unseen Caregiver Documentary places us in the center of the lives of families who must provide 24/7 care for children with medical complexities, and who struggle to do so with limited resources available for support. Directors Amanda and Tom Dyer were on hand to share their experience in making the film, and their mission to raise awareness for this community by bringing their stories into light. Because of the constraints of the care their children require, these families are isolated and alone. They are unseen by the rest of society, and their burdens are often overwhelming and unsupported. We also heard from parent panel members Sebastian Cotte, and David & Rachael Chisholm, about the toll that caregiving has taken on their lives, physical and mental health, and livelihoods. Many thanks also to Cecilia Reed for sharing her experience as a sibling of a child with exceptional needs. Kyle Pease, Chief Inspirational Officer of the Kyle Pease Foundation urged the audience to support the mission of LHA to bring a place of respite into being to support the Atlanta area.
