Tzivia Gover  and Ellen Meeropol



Elayne Clift's new collection of poems and essays focuses on the first-person experiences of caregivers.  21 women talk about the realities, the challenges and stresses, and the rewards of caring for those who can't take care of themselve.  Candid, humane, sometimes humorous, this collection opens up the often hidden world of the caregiver.
"Who takes care of the caregivers?  Who hears their stories?  This stellar collection by women who were called to care showcases the voices of the carers.  They speak of fears, regrets and practical and psychological costs, and they speak truth to aging, dementia, incontinence and love.  The selections span cultures, geographies and illnesses while speaking to a central human need: to care and be cared for, and to find meaning in big and little moments.  A valuable resource for any stage of the caregivers’ journey, this book is a beacon of light — a guide for the uninitiated and experienced caregiver alike."

Christine H. Morton, PhD, research sociologist and author, Birth Ambassadors: Women and Re-Emergence of Woman-Supported Birth in America
