Caregiving in the New Millennium is a labor of love. Over the past ten years I have had the opportunity to come in contact with so many wonderful caregivers in need of support. Writing 'Caregiving in the New Millennium' has provided an opportunity to connect with caregivers on personal level. Whether you are a paid professional working in health care, a volunteer or caring for someone you love...I commend you... I see you and all that you do... The sacrifices you've made have not gone unnoticed. I think Oliver Windell Homes best states my true feelings related to caregiving, 'I find the great thing in this world is not so much where we stand, as in what direction we are moving. To reach the port of heaven, we must sail sometimes with the wind and sometimes against it, but we must sail, and not drift, not lie at anchor.' I pray that we stand together in one accord, as members of the village and sail in the common direction, supporting, loving and caring for one another. – Dr. Eboni GreenExcerpt. © Reprinted by permission.

I AM YOUR CAREGIVER... I am your Caregiver-- Grandmother, Grandfather, Mother, Father, Brother,Sister,Great Aunt, Great Uncle, Son or Daughter. Whatever name I use to call you formally I am here for you. I have vowed to be your caregiver. I have taken on the responisibilities and tasks you can no longer perfom. There is nothing too large or too small to deserve my attention. When I am with you I feel a though I can't do anything more. When I'm away I feel I haven't done enough. Often times I don't take a vaction and if I do I can't enjoy it- Not because of anything you would ever do but, because I want to care for you. Most of the time I want to provide what you need myself because no one else could give you that personal touch. Sure I may be worn down, I might even need a break. But, if I took a physical break I would still be thinking about you. I am your doctor; I diagnose you medical conditions. I am your nurse; I take care of you physically. I am your pharmacist; I give you your medication. I am your accountant; I balance your checkbook and take care of your bills. I am your nutritionist; I assist with making your meals. I am your personal assistant, I help with making your appointments. I am your maid and your transportation director, I am all of these thing to you because I care. I am formally known as your caregiver. --Eboni Green
