California LGBT Elder Rights Lawyer

You Are No Less Equal

Senior citizens are vulnerable to mistreatment in a number of ways — with substandard medical care at home or in a nursing home, by abusive landlords who fail to provide adequate care and services, and by unscrupulous businesses.

LGBT seniors face these and other challenges. If you enter a retirement community, will you and your partner experience senior housing discrimination? Will your partner be able to make medical decisions for you and will your legal documents be honored by medical facilities? If you are a transgender individual, will you receive appropriate medical care in a nursing home?
