Why I Care
"Caregiving is near and dear to my heart because of my personal experience with friends and family members who've suffered with illnesses including heart disease, strokes, cancer, dementia and Alzheimer's, schizophrenia, and HIV. For good reason, caregiving is often seen as more of a female focus. The statistics show that women are predominantly the caregivers in our society. But many men are caretakers, too. I'm especially pleased to write for Caring.com to share more from a male point of view as well as to initiate conversations around real-life experiences and coping strategies when faced with older, infirm parents and ill loved ones."
He currently resides in Washington, D.C.
