Dementia Care and Support for Male Care Providers (for PLwD) 

The number of male caregivers entering both the professional world as well as the family caregiving world in dementia is increasing each month. Societal expectations, past life experiences, combined with biases and unfamiliarity with changing roles and responsibilities can result in frustrating, risky, and even dangerous situations for all involved.  These sessions will explore common concerns and issues and address possible factors that can be modified to improve outcomes and relationships among those involved and those concerned.


1.     Explore current male caregiving statistics and common issues and concerns associated with males in the traditionally female intimate and personal care support roles

2.     Compare and contrast male-female caregiving styles and expectations in common dementia situations

3.     Discuss key elements and options that could be useful in improving interactions and outcomes among team members that include male care providers
