More male care workers are needed to look after older people, the chief executive of Care England has said.
Prof Martin Green told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme that the government should do more to recruit men into front-line adult social care roles.
He claimed that as an increasing number of men are living longer, more men are needed for their personal care.
The Department of Health said it would always encourage more people of either gender to become carers.
“We have an ageing population and a lot of people who receive care into old age now are men,” said Prof Green.

The dignity, health and wellbeing of older people and those with disabilities in England are in danger, health and care groups warn.
In a joint submission to the Treasury ahead of November’s Spending Review, 20 organisations said the care sector was facing a “deepening crisis”.
They have called for funding to councils to be protected, as is happening with the NHS.
Ministers said investment in health would also benefit the care sector.
The government pointed out that plans were being put in place to ensure greater joint working between the two sectors that would relieve some of the pressures.
However, the signatories of the submission, who include leaders of councils, the NHS, care providers and charities, said that they still feared for the future. The document said that the market was “fragile” with councils forced to freeze fees and providers exiting the sector.

One in three people born in the UK this year is projected to develop dementia in their lifetime, according to Alzheimer’s Research UK.
The charity described the forecast as a “looming national health crisis”. The figures were based on current life expectancies and the risk of people developing dementia as they age.
However, there is acknowledgement that the figures – projecting what could be happening 100 years in the future – are only an estimate. More than 800,000 people in the country are already affected by the disease, which is caused by the destruction of brain cells.
Age is the biggest risk factor for dementia and rising life expectancies could increase the number of people living with the condition. Heart disease, diabetes, smoking and a lack of exercise are also linked to the condition.
