A national survey of LGBT baby boomers released in 2006 found that one in four respondents said that they had provided care for an adult friend or family member within the previous six months, compared with only one in five adults in the general population. What's more, three of four LGBT older adults expect to be caregivers in the future. (Out and Aging: The MetLife Study of Lesbian and Gay Baby Boomers, MetLife Mature Market Institute, in conjunction with the Lesbian and Gay Issues Network and Zogby International, November 2006.)

November is National Caregivers Month. Because care giving is such an important part of the lives of LGBT older adults, Deb Dowd-Foley, the caregiver specialist at Elder Services of Worcester, has agreed to talk to members at the Rainbow Lunch Club's next meetup at noon on November 14th at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Worcester, 90 Holden Street. Reservations are required by November 7. Please respond to the meetup event posting.
