Challenges Men Face as Caregivers
Even though caregiving is often thought of as a role assumed primarily by women, a recent survey found that 44% of caregivers are men. Like their female counterparts, approximately 3.4 million male caregivers face tremendous challenges as they simultaneously try to balance work and raise a family with the physical and emotional demands of helping an ailing or aging loved one. Find out more about the challenges men may face as caregivers in this week's Changing Lives podcast.
