LGBT Older Adults in Long-Term Care Facilities: Stories from the Field
Source: National Senior Citizens Law Center

Until now, there has been little information available about the opinions and experiences of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender older adults in long-term care settings.

While most LGBT elders would prefer to receive long term services and supports at home, traditional support systems may be limited or unavailable and alternatives such as assisted living or nursing homes may be necessary

Here you will find video stories and dozens of personal comments capturing varied experiences with long-term care of LGBT older adults, their loved ones, advocates, and the providers who care for them.

You will also find an overview of legal rights, a list of helpful resources as well as a place to share your own story.
