SAGE Releases Guide for Improving Aging Services to Older LGBT Adults
March 22, 2012 — By Alyssa Gerace — Senior Housing News
The aging lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender cohort is expanding along with the rest of the older population, increasing the importance for aging services providers to know how to best serve and support them, according to SAGE (Services & Advocacy for GLBT Elders).
"Aging service providers should be aware that the effects of a lifetime of stigma, discrimination, rejection and ridicule puts LGBT older adults at greater risk for physical and mental illnesses."
