Sappy movies – Christmas in Conway

True confessions… I can enjoy a good sappy movie (AKA tear jerkers, chick flicks… by any name I am alright with them.)

Leanne McKinzey, a PSW instructor at Centennial College recommends Christmas in Conway.

This Hallmark special tells the story about someone who is ill, a cranky caregiving husband who decides what the best medicine is for his sick wife and there is even a home care nurse who visits!

Maybe this is even a teaching/learning tool about living/dying, family caregiving, home care…. (Let me know what you think!)

(One of my favorite movies of the last few years, (have I already written about this?) was “The Bucket List” with Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman.  There is nothing better that Jack Nicholson, after he had vomited in the toilet, standing up, taking the bathroom sink in his hands, facing the mirror and saying “Somewhere some lucky bugger is dying of a heart attack”. 

Christmas in Conway, a teaching/learning tool???
