New Consumer Guide to LGBT Caregiving

New Consumer Guide to LGBT Caregiving 

Next Steps in Care, in collaboration with SAGE and SAGECAP, recently released a fact sheet that provides practical advice for LGBT caregivers.  In addition to a checklist on important legal documents, the guide also explains how hospital discharges happen, and recommends “Do not wait for the social worker on the unit to find you.  Instead, find the social worker as soon as you can.”  If a caregiver and their loved one lives near a state border or spend a lot of time in two states, the guide also recommends obtaining documents for both states since civil union or domestic partner laws may not carry across state lines.
