Summary
At a time when lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) individuals enjoy unprecedented social acceptance and legal protection, many LGBT elders face the daily challenges of aging isolated from family, detached from the larger LGBT community, and ignored by mainstream aging initiatives. These elders are more likely to be single, childless, financially insecure, fearful of encountering bias in health care settings, and socially isolated. And the continuing silence surrounding LGBT elders has left many of them underserved and at risk. This Medical Center Hour makes the case that increased cultural competency measures are necessary within medicine and society to help older LGBT persons overcome barriers to successful aging and to ensure that we are all taking good care of our LGBT elders.
