The Caregiver’s Pledge

Elderly woman with cheerful caregiver outdoor, springtime

I pledge my unwavering devotion to your well-being.

I will strive hard to keep you stress-free.

I will try to convert chaos to calm on your worst days.

I will help you find strength of purpose on your best days.

I pledge patience as you express deep-seated fears.

I will serve as your confidante and companion.

I will hold your hand

Listen to your heart

And be fully present for you.

I pledge to cultivate your contentment

Joy

And peace of mind.

In all of this, I pray for your good health

And pledge my undying love for you

Now

And always
