Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Ageing

by Richard Ward, Ian Rivers and Mike Sutherland (Editors)
£22.99   paperback  Jessica Kingsley Publishers (2012)

Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Ageing by Richard Ward, Ian Rivers and Mike Sutherland (Editors) Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people often face unique challenges as they grow older. It is vital that those providing them with care and support understand their needs, wishes and experiences.
 
This book demonstrates how biographical approaches can increase understanding about the distinct perspectives of older LGBT people, enhancing inclusive care and support. Chapters explore people's expectations and fears surrounding care and service provision, the impact of discrimination, and specific issues such as HIV, dementia and end-of-life care. The importance of understanding people's whole lives in order to meet their needs is demonstrated, drawing on the examples of community projects that provide services and build networks. The voices of older LGBT people are heard throughout the book through the use of case examples and original research.
 
This insightful book will be essential reading for all those supporting or caring for older LGBT people, as well as students and researchers in the health and social work fields.
