Los Angeles, CA
The Los Angeles Gay & Lesbian Center operates the only fully integrated Seniors Services program for lesbian, gay, bisexual or transsexual (LGBT) seniors in the Greater Los Angeles area. Alzheimer’s disease impacts LGBT 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 LGBT 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.
