It is the proposed closing of the Long Term Care facility at the Motion Picture and Television Fund's Woodland Hills campus. Fondly known as The Old Actors Home, the Country Home was opened in 1942 and the Hospital in 1948. There are people residing there right now with names that you know. Other residents are the artistic technicians who worked behind the camera and are no less responsible for our entertainment than the marquee 'names'. I am crushed at the thought of this facility being no more. I've been there and it's fantastic.
Thankfully, 'researcher' put a link on the comment to an organization called Saving the Lives of Our Own. There is a petition there that you can sign. (I did 3 days ago and I haven't received any spam yet) Their goal is 5000 signatures and at present, there aren't even 1500! Please do this folks. The residents have given us countless hours of joy and, just now, they need our help.
Below is a list of former residents many of whom ended their days in these beautiful surroundings.
Thanks very much.
