Dr. Julie Bates, Interim Senior Advisor, LGBTQ Audience Strategy, at the AARP’s Office of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion speaks with FSTV on the latest #JustSolutions about how elder LGBTQ have difficulties with receiving benefits.
LGBTQ seniors face specific challenges. According to the AARP, three out of four adults age 45 and older who are lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender say they are concerned about having enough support from family and friends as they age. Many are also worried about how they will be treated in long-term care facilities and want specific LGBT services for older adults. Dr. Julie Bates, Interim Senior Advisor, LGBTQ Audience Strategy, at the AARP’s Office of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion says more needs to be done to help LGBTQ seniors.
FSTV’s Just Solutions features inspiring conversations with activists, community leaders, and others working to make our world a better place. We discuss the many challenges we are facing, while exploring the solutions emerging from the grassroots.
