Someterse a un procedimiento quirúrgico o médico puede ser una de las épocas más dificiles en la vida. Normalmente las personas dependen de familiares para ayudarles durante todo el proceso y cuidarles. Pero qué pasa si uno no tiene familiares que pueden hacerse cargo de su cuidado?

Esta guía es una herramienta práctica para adultos mayores LGBT (lesbianas, gay, bisexuales y transgénero) y otros que se van a someter a una cirugía u otro procedimiento médico, y necesitan o quieren tomar control para planificar su propio cuidado.
