Men in Caregiving: Join Us in Honoring Their Strength and Courage to Care!
Direct care is not and should not be “gender specific”. Direct care is hard work and noble work…whether you are a man or a woman. Men in caregiving often deal with their own unique issues or challenges. Things like:
- Work that is stigmatized as undervalued women’s work…suggesting that women’s work is easy work and we know that’s not true!!!
- Residents or clients refusing a male caregiver.
