Queer Caregiver Support Group – Women Supporting Female Partners

When aging intersects with being queer/alphabet, we need community resources that understand the specific concerns that arise from being part of two oppressed social categories.

This support group for women caring for sick or elderly women partners has been held for about a year and has been a good resource for many. It is now opening up to more participants–please see the flyer below and contact Patricia to RSVP or find out more!
