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.
