Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to locate a potential funding source and write a grant to develop a competency training for social workers and other helping professionals that address the many challenges that lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) older adults face when accessing services. An extensive literature review was performed to investigate the best way to address the unique needs of this population. A search was conducted to locate an appropriate funder for the training that focused on improving the lives of older adults who are LGBT. Aging adults who identify as LGBT face challenges related to healthcare, poverty, discrimination, and stigmatization. The competency training will provide social workers and other professionals knowledge and skills to facilitate the integration of this population into agencies. If funded, this training program will increase staff competency and improve services. Actual submission of this grant was not a requirement for this project.
