Development for LGBTQ friendly long-term care system is a symbol of health human right realization, this text suggested professional long-term care group and the government should take the experience of LGBTQ friendly medicine construction as references, to establish a true LGBTQ friendly long-term care system, to give everyone citizen (include LGBTQ) individualized and holistic caring support.
