Kindle versionA new book, Who Says Men Don’t Care? is written specifically for four generations of male caregivers. The premise of the Guide is that men care differently than women, and these differences present both opportunities and potential problems in all male caregiving situations. Knowing better who you are can make you a healthier and more balanced caregiver.

A step by step approach to strengthening areas that need attention while acknowledging, encouraging and celebrating those areas of successful care giving is enhanced with helpful checklists that assist with analysis of care management. While exposing and debunking myths and stereotypes about male caregivers, it gives an important examination of generational attributes that impact upon care giving.
