More and more, aging and disability providers across the country are seeking to ensure that they are providing culturally responsive services to lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) older adults – including agencies located in rural parts of the country. Rural organizations face additional challenges due to the lack of existing LGBT community infrastructure and must seek new solutions to reach and serve LGBT older adults in culturally responsive ways. This presentation provides a firm grounding in SAGE’s best practice guide for the Aging and Disability network LGBT outreach and planning.
