Listening to LGBT Seniors

Listening to LGBT Seniors

26 October 2021
All

Engaging in a conversation with the National Seniors community about the experiences and needs of older LGBT people.

Summary
In this report we seek to engage in a National Seniors conversation with our own community about the experiences and needs of older LGBT people and how we might best respond to them. We also wish to contribute to conversations about these matters taking place in the context of the findings from the Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety. The Commission reported that older people receiving age care who have diverse genders or sexualities are at increased risks of abuse, isolation, and discrimination.
