Los Angeles, CA
The Los Angeles Gay & Lesbian Center operates the only fully integrated Seniors Services program for lesbian, gay, bisexual or transsexual (LGBTQ+) seniors in the Greater Los Angeles area. Alzheimer’s disease impacts LGBTQ+ seniors at the same rate as their heterosexual peers. As a result, the Center’s Seniors Services program developed monthly Alzheimer’s (Disease) Caregiver and Bereavement support groups. These are the only support groups specifically for LGBTQ+ caregivers and partners living with Alzheimer’s disease in the nation. Those who participate in the Caregiver support groups also have access to a system of comprehensive wrap-around care with legal, medical, and mental health services.
