After her husband passed away, Jeane Pijman is left with a house with a family doctor’s practice in Tilburg, that’s too big for her. Her two daughters decide to move her to Amsterdam, where they live. In Amsterdam, she lives at first in the house of her daughter Claire, but Claire finds it hard to combine the care for her mother with the care for her family and her work. When two doors down the street a house is put up for sale, Jeane moves in there. Her physical and mental decline becomes more and more apparent. When permanent care at home appears to be an impossibility, her daughters decide that a nursing home is the only solution.


 

 

Jean has spent all her life as a doctor and raised five wonderful sons and daughters with her husband. With her husband gone, she spends her old age with a deteriorating mind and body. Her two daughters move her to Amsterdam to be closer to them, but trying to live their lives in addition to taking care of their aging mother begins to takes its toll. Later We Care illustrates how a mother who was once meant everything in the world becomes smaller and how she is sent off, showing that ‘motherhood’ is a story of daughters, as well as mothers. (Jay SOHN)
