Caregiving

In the United States, 43 million adult family caregivers care for someone older than age 50, and 14.9 million care for someone with Alzheimer’s disease or another dementia. The last updated value of that caregiving was $450 billion per year, and it only stands to grow. These caregivers need our help, and ASA supplies the information and resources they need. What are the latest models for preventing cognitive decline? How much will long-term care cost and what are the other options? How does palliative care work versus hospice? Are there intergenerational programs that can enrich the lives of those with dementia? Find the answers here.

Leveraging Resources to Better Serve LGBT Veterans

posted 01.17.2017

By Kathleen M. Sullivan

Like many who direct senior centers or nonprofits serving LGBT older adults, I consistently look for ways to better serve my clients and support my staff. With tight budgets and multiple demands, it’s not always easy, and can be rather daunting. Poverty, isolation and disability create a trifecta for LGBT older adults that often precipitates functional and cognitive decline.
