Caregivers Circle – Where will we go? The LGBT aging community crisis

We are all aging.  The demographics are shifting and resources are lacking to support our seniors.  For the LGBT community, resources, and particularly housing needs are virtually non-existent. Due to stigma, discrimination, family dynamics and other issues, this aging community is at risk of having limited support.  This week’s guest, Serena Worthington from SAGE discusses the complexity of this issue and the efforts being made to rectify it.  For more information visit their Facebook site.  To read about the study regarding the experience of the LGBT community looking for housing visit the Equal Rights Center.
