As Caregiver Guy, I have to ask AARP why are they limiting their Caregiver scholarships to women only. I met a guy at a coffee shop in Orinda, California and we found that we had something in common. We were both caregivers. He's been taken care of his father by himself for almost five years until his father's recent death. As a 54-year old former salesman, he's having great difficulty finding a job in today's market and taken care of his father's medical bills.
I do understand that the majority of caregivers are women and perhaps their needs are greater but why are they limiting the program to women?
