LGBT Aging Commission Report
In September, 2015, the General Court’s Massachusetts Special Legislative Commission on LGBT Aging released its final report. This Commission, co-chaired by Senator Patricia Jehlen (D-Somerville) and Representative James O’Day (D-West Boylston) was the first statewide commission in the country to focus on the needs of LGBT older adults. It was tasked with investigating, analyzing, and studying the health, housing, financial, psychosocial, and long-term care needs of older lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender adults, and their caregivers, and to make recommendations to improve access to benefits and services where appropriate and necessary.
