Little is known about what LGBT older adults think of, prepare for, and want for their end-of-life care experience. In order to fill the gap in knowledge, two researchers from Saint Louis University performed a study in which 17 LGBT individuals, 60 years and older were asked these questions:
1. What are LGBT older adults’ perceptions of end-of-life care?
2. Do LGBT older adults think and plan for their end-of-life care?
3. What are the concerns and challenges for LGBT older adults as they work toward their “ideal” end-of-life care experiences?
