Lesbian, Gay Male, Bisexual and Transgendered Elders: Elder Abuse and Neglect Issues
January 2002 | Loree Cook-Daniels
“"Adult protective services workers, no matter how skilled and caring, cannot begin to negate or compensate for the violence and prejudice Lesbian, Gay male, and transgendered elders face. What they can do is try to be more aware of the perhaps-hidden realities of clients' lives, and be more skilled at addressing clients' fears and needs."”
This is possibly the earliest academic article (1997) on LGBT elder abuse. It defines sexual orientation and gender identity and discusses the social, psychological, and legal environment of LGBT elders. It also covers types of abuse, barriers to help-seeking, and implications for Adult Protective Services workers.
