LGBTQ Seniors Face Unique Challenges

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.
