Program Description


“Caroline Abrahams, charity director of Age UK, said that there is cause for concern over mistreatment of older LGBT people in the care system.
‘We are worried about a hidden minority of residents who may be experiencing homophobic care,’ she says. 'Our concern is that some older people will feel they have to hide who they are because they are scared of how people will react.' ”

“ 'The whole question started within myself: what will I do, what are my possibilities as a single man if I don’t find anyone to live with, what will my older days look like?' said Fallman, at 57 the home’s youngest resident."
