FCA Supports LGBTQ+ Caregivers
June 12, 2023
As a San Francisco-based nonprofit supporting family caregivers for more than 40 years, FCA celebrates and honors diversity and inclusion. We consider family to be an inclusive term and we recognize that caregivers might be friends, partners and community.
We join the world in celebrating Pride Month, and we’re proud to advocate for and support LGBTQ+ caregivers everywhere.
Through the development of LGBTQ+-related resources, support groups, training sessions, events and partnerships, we work to ensure we’re addressing the needs of these caregivers and supporting them.
If you’re an LGBTQ+ caregiver seeking resources, please see our fact sheets:
We also offer an online support group called LGBTQ+ Community Support Caregiving for our Families and Friends. It’s a place for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender caregivers of adults with chronic health problems to discuss the unique issues of caring for their loved ones.
There are many organizations in the SF Bay Area and across the country that provide support and community to LGBTQ+ caregivers and older adults. They can be a great resource for services and programs so consider learning more and supporting them:
We’re happy to join in Pride Month celebrations, honoring the generations of LGBTQ+ individuals who have fought for change, and to continue supporting LGBTQ+ caregivers.
