Abstract [en]

There is mounting evidence that Swedish elder care is unable to adequately address the unique needs of older lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) persons, and that social work research and services do not focus on individual variations within the LGTBQ-group. There are negative consequences for older LGBTQ individuals, including poor service utilization. Significantly, service utilization is associated with improved outcomes across the life course. Based on interviews with 15 participants living at home in Sweden, this qualitative study explores how older Swedish LGBTQ adults assess elder care alternatives for their future. Findings indicate that feeling accepted as individuals is essential, but that this did not necessarily mean being recognized as an LGBTQ individual. Feeling welcome individually transcended the need to be recognized as LGBTQ. Implications for social work include increasing cultural competence for work with diverse older adults, including LGBTQ persons, and advocating for person-centered care.
