New Online Community for Men Providing Senior Care

By Michelle Seitzer / Posted on 08 November 2012

The newest group to emerge as caregivers for seniors, joining the millions already providing care? Men.

Recognizing this trend, more resources tailored to men are popping up online, including this one — The Male Caregiver Community (currently sponsored by Homewatch CareGivers). The forum is filled with informative articles, places to ask questions and participate in group discussions, and more. Article topics include advice on caring for a spouse, emotional and physical well-being tips, dealing with grief in the father-son relationship, and personal stories from those facing the challenges of caring for someone with Alzheimer’s disease.

For any new caregiver — male or female — the greatest challenge may be knowing where to begin when it comes to getting help or advice, or in figuring out how, when and where to search for home care or assisted living.

Look no further than our site: we offer a free search engine that allows you to browse and compare listings by city, state, or zip in a variety of categories (home care, retirement living, continuing care, etc.). We’ve also got thousands of blog articles and resource guides on a range of senior care topics. Our social media community is also very active; you can ask us questions directly or engage with other senior caregivers and professionals via Twitter (follow us @Seniors4Living), on Facebook, or on LinkedIn.
