"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.
