SAGE Advocacy & Services for LGBTQ+ Elders 

Caregiving can be a rewarding but sometimes challenging experience. LGBTQ+ caregivers face unique obstacles, from healthcare laws that privilege biological families to a lack of resources for LGBTQ+ -specific needs. Because LGBTQ+ people are twice as likely to age alone and four times less likely to have children, LGBTQ+ elders become caregivers more often than their heterosexual counterparts.

PFLAG and SAGE Supporting Your LGBTQ+ Grandchild 

Grandparents play an important role in the lives of their grandchildren, serving as a soft spot to land during difficult times. Yet, when a grandchild comes out as LGBTQ+, grandparents might be among the last to know. This isn’t because that relationship is less important, however, but sometimes because an LGBTQ+ young person might be fearful of losing that close relationship and unconditional love, which means so much to them. This booklet is designed to help answer questions you may have and direct you to additional resources.
