"Having experienced rejection and disrespect in health care settings, many older LGBT individuals avoid seeing a health care provider until a serious problem arises."

This guide examines the issues that arise in LGBT caregiving, as LGBT individuals may encounter special challenges whether they are acting as caregivers or are the ones in need of care. It also provides a legal document checklist that overviews the function of various important health care documents, such as a health care proxy, living will, and financial power of attorney.
