The Challenges Facing LGBT Seniors

LGBT adults face unique challenges as they get older.

Studies show as they get older, Gay/LGBT seniors are at far greater risk than their straight peers for depression and isolation which may cause associated health problems. A recent survey of gay seniors living in San Francisco found that 58 percent of LGBT men and women age 60 or older live alone, compared with just 25 percent of straight older adults.

Older gay men and women are less likely than straight seniors to have children to depend on, either financially or emotionally. They’re also far less likely to be married and often don’t have a long-term partner.

Stories abound of Gay men and women who chose to hide their sexual orientation after living most of their lives in the open. This rather than face judgment or discrimination from the staff or residents of retirement communities.
