Here’s what some male caregivers have already said:
“I have worked in hospice for over ten years, and I have seen the number of male caregivers increase. Jim and Rhonda have provided a valuable, informative and needed guide for all of those men out there struggling to understand themselves as they give care. When I took the assessment, it captured my own caregiving style perfectly. WOW and thanks.”
- Vince Marolla, MDiv., hospice chaplain and trainer

“I wish I'd had this caregiving Guide when I was caring for my wife. It would have eliminated the necessity of trial-and-error learning and significantly lightened our burden.”
- Dan Daily, male caregiver

“Who Says Men Don’t Care will be a real life-line. I experienced the concept of a ‘tipping point’ and that gave me such clear guidance to realize the blessing of home hospice for the final times with my late wife. With this Guide, I would have recognized it sooner.”
- Steve Coleman, male caregiver

I have just finished reading James Gambone and Rhonda Travland's guide for male caregivers. As a person who has served in a numerous caregiving roles over the past thirty years, I found the guide both helpful and thought provoking. Its CARES Assessment provides ways to think through strengths and weaknesses and points the way forward. There are helpful distinctions between grief and depression. Readers are invited to think through specific issues relating to their generational group and assess when a "tipping point" has been reached. The guide is concise and easy to read. It also provides a wealth of additional resources in the appendix including websites, newsletters and books.
