Drawing on the experiences of older trans people and those transitioning later in life, this is a definitive guide to ageing as a trans and/or non-binary person. It covers the key health concerns and social issues affecting older trans people, including care homes, pensions, inheritance and funeral planning, as well as hormone use and physical changes, isolation and dementia.

Kermode also provides guidance for professionals looking to better meet the needs of these individuals and highlights the important factors that need to be considered at an institutional level to provide the best care for people across the gender spectrum.

MEDIA REVIEWS
This book is invaluable, not just for trans and non-binary people planning for their later years but also for non-trans professionals who work in social care with older adults. Jennie has a delightfully clear way of painting the whole life context and structural challenges facing trans people as they age. The book is especially invaluable for those whose lack of background experience might make it difficult to empathise or anticipate. -- Christine Burns MBE, Author and Transgender Activist
This book is a fantastic practical resource for trans and non-binary people as well as all of us who want to better understand the experiences of trans elders, and step up our work as allies. In LGBT+ communities the experiences, insights and needs of our elders are too often pushed to one side, and Jennie's book is an important first step towards foregrounding the experience of trans and non-binary people as they grow older. -- Nancy Kelley, Chief Executive, Stonewall
A highly informative and very accessible guide that will provide much-needed guidance for trans and non-binary individuals in mid to later life and those professionals and service providers supporting older adults. Kermode has written a comprehensive volume that addresses key areas of planning across social, financial and medical life for older trans adults - this is a timely publication when there is so limited guidance and information available for trans people in older age. -- Dr Paul Willis, Senior lecturer in social work, School for Policy Studies, University of Bristol.
This book offers significant insights into the lives of our Trans elders and should be required reading for anyone working, supporting or providing services to an ageing LGBTQ+ population it's also a warm and encouraging book which enables us to look positively at the process of growing older successfully with a richness and life affirming sense of self. * GScene Magazine *
