Fri, 01/29/2021 - 8:30pm - 9:00pm

Men Caring tells the story of three men who are the primary caregivers for adults with disabilities.

In a field traditionally held by women, these compassionate men tell personal stories of how they were inspired to become caregivers for this special population. Through interviews, verité scenes, home movies, and family photos, viewers meet the caregivers and receivers and see the rewards of their unique relationships. Men Caring airs Friday, January 29 at 8:30 p.m. on WXXI-TV.

This documentary is presented as part of Dialogue on Disability, a partnership between WXXI and Al Sigl Community of Agencies that celebrates people with differing abilities.
