Program Information: While older lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) adults confront the same issues everyone else does when choosing aging services, the reality of life in long-term care for LGBT people can be drastically different from their non-LGBT peers. Join this session to learn about the concerns of LGBT elders, gain insight into the Long-term Care Equality Index (LEI), a benchmarking tool, and walk away with steps you can take to promote equitable and inclusive long-term residential care and services in your community.
