Over the past 10 years the concerns and needs of older Lesbian, Gay and Bisexual (LGB) people have become clearer through UK research and reflection on practice in social care and housing. Now there is a compelling evidence base on the challenges for the present generation of older LGB people who need care and support, ranging from home care to residential care for those with high support needs. The most relevant findings here concern how older LGB people perceive or experience mainstream social care and support and accommodation options.
