Editorial Reviews


"Tim Johnston's book is a timely, grounded, and most importantly useful guide for how to make our services more open to LGBT seniors. It can serve as a reference text for leadership staff and also an accessible educational tool for students and staff. I would encourage anyone working with older adults, not only those working in senior living, to take a look and see what they can learn." 
-- Paula Basta, Director of the Illinois Department of Aging

"For far too long, LGBT older people have encountered bias, stigma, and discrimination across the senior living environment. In response to this profound problem, Tim Johnston has written a comprehensive and accessible resource for the entire eldercare workforce--one that acknowledges that many LGBT older people live at the intersection of multiple identities, and they, as much as anyone, deserve to have a place they can call 'home.'" 
-- Robert Espinoza, Vice President of Policy, PHI

"Combining current research, best practices, and his own experiences training providers across the country, Dr. Johnston has created a road map for providers of services and supports to create safe and affirming environments where LGBTQ older adults can thrive. This comprehensive text is a valuable guide and resource for any provider looking to make their organization a place where older adults, their families and staff can be who they are, regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity." 
-- Kevin Bradley, Associate Director of Online Learning, LeadingAge

"With an extensive background in advocacy and training, the author has significant experience and working knowledge of the needs of older LGBT adults. The history of LGBT people includes discrimination, criminality, being considered deviant or mentally ill and subjected to inappropriate medical 'therapies'. This coupled with the dearth of research into the needs of older LGBT adults makes this publication most welcome" 
-- Patricia MacGabhann, Clinical and Operational Director, Nightingale Nursing Home, Galway Ireland

"This book presents significant insights into creating inclusive environments for older LGBT people. It will also enable professionals to respond appropriately to challenging situations in residential care homes." 
-- Dr. Ralf Lottmann, Marie Sklodowska-Curie Fellow at the University of Surrey, UK
