I hope this "inequality" doesn't put off male carers from the profession. There is always a shortage of male carers so hang in there and moan at your schedulers!

Agreed. I sometimes refer to The Sisterhood. Probably not PC term, but sometimes not always, it's nice to be in an all female group. Dressmaking is my passion, I like sewing related events, for example. It's the same for care too. I'd love my son with
LD to have more male carers, but they are very rare!

I know quite a few male carers from the agency my carees use, mostly female though, about 10 male, 100 female, so about 10 per cent.
