Having quality relationships plays a critical part in people’s lives. One of the challenges that elders experience is difficulty in securing sources of providing and receiving care. Lesbian, gay, or bisexual (LGB) elders in particular encounter unique barriers in finding support and receiving care because they may experience an interplay of sexual orientation and aging barriers. Most LGB research has been focused on the young LGB population and paid less attention to LGB elders.
