What kind of caregiver are you? Are you the Manager, the Searcher, the Loner, the Techno-Virtual Caregiver, or some combination of all of the above? You can find out with the new Guide for male caregivers.
While there are many excellent caregiving resources available for all kinds of diseases and illnesses, Who Says Men Don’t Care? A Man’s Guide to Balanced and Guilt Free Caregiving, is unique because it 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 who you are can make you a healthier and more balanced caregiver.
Among the many helpful resources in this Guide, you will find:
• The CARES Assessment – that demonstrates your caregiving strengths, styles, and weaknesses.
• The “Generational Caregiving Types” – helps you learn from four generations of male caregivers.
• The Myths of Caregiving – keeps you from repeating mistakes other men have made.
• The Tipping Point, and Plan B Assessments – let you know when it’s time to change course.
An Old Chinese Proverb says, “A wise man adapts himself to circumstances as water shapes itself to the vessel that contains it.”
Who Says Men Don’t Care? will help men shape themselves for difficult times. And as Gary Barg, the founder of Caregiver.com and one of the most respected men in caregiving today concluded in his Forward, “Male caregivers can, at times, feel like fish out of water when dealing with the daily challenges of family caregiving. With Who Says Men Don’t Care? A Man’s Guide to Balanced and Guilt-Free Caregiving, men can finally understand the waters in which they find themselves as informal caregivers.” (From B&N)
