LGBT Caregiver Concerns & Alzheimer's Brochure
January 2015 | Alzheimer's Association
“"LGBT people are more likely to become caregivers for a partner, friend or biological family member."”
Many lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people have experienced difficult and alienating relationships with family, friends, employers and service providers. Some have felt the need to move away from their families of origin, to stay in the closet or to distance themselves from discriminating and prejudiced situations. Yet, LGBT people are more likely to become caregivers for a partner, friend or biological family member. While caregiving can be rewarding, it can also be isolating. This brochure will help you navigate community resources and options for support.
