"Aging service providers should always work from the premise that they have LGBT clients, even if no one has openly identified as LGBT."

At the National Resource Center on LGBT Aging, we are frequently contacted by aging service providers who are interested in working with lesbian, gay, bisexual and/or transgender (LGBT) older adults but are unsure of how to best serve and support them. Here some suggestions for how to begin. This list is adapted from Inclusive Services for LGBT Older Adults: A Practical Guide to Creating Welcoming Agencies.

Fascinating read. There is certainly ctelrnury quite lots of facts close to this subject matter all-around and about on the net and some are most defintely better than others. You might have caught the detail right here just correct which makes for a refreshing change thanks.

Like to see resources/discussions about shared housing or group housing listings for older LGBT.

This is useful information for "facility based" services (assisted living, etc.). However, what about community based services; such as adult day care, senior dining sites, etc. That can become more challenging for those of us who would like to ensure we are really inclusive.
