2422: Improving Care for LGBTQ+ Elders

2422:  Improving Care for LGBTQ+ Elders.  LGBTQ+ older adults face unique health and social disparities. In comparison with their straight and cisgender peers, they are more likely to live alone and feel socially isolated, to lack a caregiver, to live in poverty, and to experience discrimination and mistreatment in healthcare settings. This presentation will help familiarize social workers about these and other issues facing LGBTQ+ older adults and will empower them to be effective and culturally informed advocates for this vulnerable population.  Presented by:  Jim Meadows, LMSW.   Members:  $25 / Non-Member $45.  1.50 General.
