There is a growing number of male caregivers to small children or aging parents in our society. Male caregivers now comprise 45% of all family caregivers in the nation.

The average male caregiver is 49 years old. He works at a full time job though, and is usually caring for an aging parent ( usually his mom- average age of 77). The average source of the caring in this situation is alzheimers or dementia.

It can be attributed to a number of different things though, including divorce, more female primary breadwinners in the family  and more openly gay men.

Join Flex Hour Jobs as we discuss the reasons for this societal change and what we can do to change the perspective at the workplace.
