"Without traditional support systems in place, many LGBT elders end up relying on nursing homes or other institutions providing long-term care."

This publication is the result of a survey undertaken by six organizations seeking to better understand the experiences of LGBT older adults in long-term care settings. The survey also sought to capture personal comments that describe some of the varied experiences of LGBT older adults, their loved ones, and the providers who care for them.
