"MEN WHO CARE FOR THOSE WITH ALZHEIMER'S SUPPORT" PROGRAM

"It's a well-known fact that most caregivers are women: Of the 43.5 million adults who care for an older family member or friend, nearly two out of three are female, according to a report published by AARP and the National Alliance for Caregiving (NAC). Still, that means that one out of three caregivers , about 14.5 million are men. That's a significant number: about 6 percent of all adults in the United States. And while male caregivers deal with many of the same issues as their female counterparts, they also face some unique challenges."
The "Men Who Care for Those With Alzheimer's Support" Program meets regularly.
Male caregivers of individuals with Alzheimer's or a related dementia support each other, share and learn new information and come up with solutions to specific problems.
