Does your wellness business serve older adults? Here’s some good stuff specifically for LGBT seniors.
Useful LGBT Aging Resources
LGBT seniors face unique challenges, particularly because many laws, programs and services exclude LGBT partners.
Here are several starting points to help you better serve your senior clients and members:
- National LGBT Aging Roundtable — a consortium of 50+ organizations focused on quality of life for LGBT older adults
- Extensive report authored by SAGE (Services and Advocacy for Gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender Elders) and MAP (LGBT Movement Advancement Project)
- National Resource Center on LGBT Aging – The country’s first and only technical assistance resource center aimed at improving the quality of services and supports offered to lesbian, gay, bisexual and/or transgender older adults.
- LGBT Aging Project – A non-profit organization dedicated to ensuring that lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender older adults have equal access to life-prolonging benefits, protections, services and institutions.
