Men who are caregivers need directions
The family caregiver has typically been a woman, but it is no longer atypical when that role is performed by a man.
In 2001, a study by the Family Caregiver Alliance estimated that as few as 25 percent of caregivers were men. By 2009, an AARP study put the number of male caregivers at 40 percent. Now, a new Pew survey found that as many as 45 percent of caregivers are men.
