Finding the Right Senior Housing Can Be a Challenge for LGBTQ Elders

Senior Housing Plymouth


Are you worried about finding the right care?

Are you worried you’ll be singled out for being different?


Are you worried about how you’re going to pay for senior housing in Plymouth or the surrounding areas?


According to SeniorLiving.org, LGBTQ elders face many challenges including:


  • “Government social programs such as Social Security and Medicaid do not recognize or support LGBT families.
  • Social Security does not pay survivor benefits to same-sex partners.
  • Unlike married heterosexual spouses, unmarried partners in lifelong relationships cannot receive Social Security benefits.
  • Medicaid does not protect same-sex partners' assets and homes when a spouse enters a long-term care facility.
  • Many same-sex partners are denied visitation rights in hospitals and long-term care facilities.
  • In some senior living communities, LGBT people are openly discriminated against and/or ostracized.”
