September 2017 | SAGE

As we look at the caregiving relationships within the LGBT community, we see similarities and differences among several different kinds of caregivers. It is our hope that this guide will help you to support all of these populations by providing information and tools to assist you in creating programs that are responsive to the common needs of caregivers in the LGBT community.

This guide provides an overview of caregiving in the LGBT community, and specific ideas, lessons learned and best practices for expanding programming to reach and include LGBT caregivers and those caring for LGBT older adults. It’s applicable to both those serving LGBT people but not caregivers, and to those serving older adult/caregivers but not LGBT people. A list of resources, both for service providers and for caregivers themselves, is included.
