He also shares some of the latest AARP research on LGBTQ caregivers and how to care for members of the LGBTQ community and explains why advancing longevity is a justice issue. Nii-Quartelai also discusses the forthcoming long-term care index from SAGE and the Human Rights Council and how it will help families find safe and accepting communities, becoming a long-distance caregiver for both his mother and brother during the pandemic, and the difference between equality and equity.
