Male Live In Carer Required To Offer Assistance?
Male live in carer required to provide personal care or aid? If you’re a man, particularly if you’re a young man, the thought of having your personal needs attended to by women can be a source of embarrassment. Maintaining your independence and dignity may be best served by hiring a male carer.
If you’re a man suffering from age related illnesses or perhaps a younger man who has suffered an injury, you may be more comfortable with a male live in carer. While these are certainly rarer than female carers, they provide an alternative for men who may struggle with the idea of a female live in care worker. This is particularly relevant if it’s a short term care package to cover the aftermath of an injury or a companionship care worker to enable those with mental health issues to live normal lives. Hiring a man can give male clients the confidence they need to do the things they want to do whilst still being provided with the level of care they need. For instance, a male service user will likely be more comfortable with a male carer performing personal care tasks such as showering and taking them to the toilet, especially if there are sensitive medical issues involved. If you’re searching specifically for a male live in carer, you may hit a few stumbling blocks along the way. It’s true that it may take time to find the right agency to help you, but it’ll be worth it when you have your new carer.
