The Conversation Project
The Conversation Project is dedicated to helping people talk about their wishes for end-of-life care. We know that no guide and no single conversation can cover all of the decisions that you and your family may face. What a conversation can do is provide a shared understanding of what matters most to you and your loved ones. This can make it easier to make decisions when the time comes.

In addition to having conversations about your end-of-life care wishes, it's just as important to choose a health care proxy — the person who will make decisions about your medical care if you become unable to make them for yourself. This person is also called a health care agent or Power of Attorney for Health Care. Download your free guide now by clicking on your language preference below:

Caring for a spouse, partner, close friend, or family member is one of the most important roles you’ll play. As our loved ones age it’s likely a matter of when, not if, they will need our help. Nearly 44 million Americans—1 in 5 adults— are caregivers for a relative or friend over age 50.1 It may start with driving your loved one to get groceries or going to the doctor. Later, you may find yourself taking more time off from work, preparing meals, or handling bills. If your loved one identifies as lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender (LGBT), you will likely face extra challenges around caregiving. LGBT older adults are twice as likely to be single and four times less likely to have children than their non-LGBT counterparts. Many are estranged from their biological families which means they’re less likely to have the traditional caregiver support that many older adults rely on. Download now.
Successfully supporting LGBT caregivers requires an understanding of these differences as well as modified interventions designed to meet their needs. This guide will provide an overview of what caregiving looks like in the LGBT community, and offer service providers ideas and best practices for reaching and supporting these caregivers.
