Abstract

Only recently has research focused on families and social support systems of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) older adults; to date, this research is limited. This article highlights new findings and insights on the changing American family, with an emphasis on LGBT families and caregiving, and explores the importance of recognizing the diversity in family types and roles- especially when considering the care provided by and for LGBT individuals.
