ABSTRACT
The article compares the support networks and life satisfaction between older lesbians and heterosexual women in the U.S. It assesses their coping mechanism relating to aging. It is observed that social service agencies provide a life-changing opportunity to older lesbians. Further research is recommended to identify the difficulties encountered with aging and ensure that older homosexuals are treated with respect and provided with the necessary services in their later years.
