Participate In LGBT and Caregiving Survey

BY BTL STAFF

In an effort to better understand caregiving with LGBT older adults, members of the community are invited to participate in the LGBT and Caregiving Survey.

The online questionnaire was designed in a collaboration between SAGE Metro Detroit and the three Area Agencies on Aging-Area Agency on Aging 1-B, Detroit Area Agency on Aging, and The Senior Alliance.

A caregiver is defined as any adult who is providing physical and/or emotional support and care to an individual who is chronically ill, disabled, or who needs assistance with personal or household care.

To participate, these organizations simply ask that members of the community meet at least one, or both, of the following criteria: a caregiver for an LGBT older adult or an LGBT older adult and caregiver for someone else.

The survey takes 5-10 minutes to complete and closes on Nov. 30. By answering the questions, members of the community will help these organizations learn more about how to best serve and support the care of LGBT older adults. Survey takers are encouraged to answer with as little or as much information as they feel comfortable. The survey can be exited at anytime. Individual survey results will be kept confidential. To help ensure confidentiality, individual IP addresses will not be collected.

Contact SAGE Metro Detroit with questions or email Kathleen LaTosch at klatosch@gmail.com or by phone at 248-812-9202.

Millennials Missing from AIDS Walk Detroit

Those doing the shouting and the stomping to raise HIVAIDS awareness are getting noticeably older. And as more and more Millennials begin to consider HIV a minor manageable disease, their absence at AIDS Walk Detroit has become apparent. They were not around when contracting HIV was considered a death sentence. They didn't witness the LGBT community being ravaged in the 1980s. They've never heard of AZT. Instead, they're coming of age in the era of drug cocktails and PrEP.
