Men make up only about 10% of the direct care workforce. Men who work in direct care deal with unique challenges in a field that is already challenging. Society tends to view caregiving as women’s work, implying that it is “easy”! Anyone who has ever done direct care…male or female…knows that is not true. Men in caregiving were recognized during the Iowa CareGivers conference for having the Courage to Care. Congratulations to all the men who join many women in a field that is tough both physically and mentally but rewarding on so many fronts!!
It was the best two days of my life!
I liked the feeling of value and purpose in my career choice.
Being in a positive environment where you actually feel appreciated for the work you do.
