Improving the livelihood of LGBTQIA+ seniors and announcing our partnership with SAGECare

With concerns about their safety and quality of care, many LGBTQIA+ elders must choose to hide their gender identity and/or sexual orientation to survive in the healthcare system. This webinar is about understanding what makes older LGBTQIA+ seniors feel the way they feel and how we can help serve them. We’re also excited to announce our partnership with SAGECare! SAGECare is an organization dedicated to improving the lives of LGBTQIA+ older adults by providing LGBTQIA+ competency training to service providers. This partnership allows us to provide agencies like yours with content for administrators and caregivers with knowledge surrounding the LGBTQIA+ community. You will take away how your agency and caregivers alike can provide more equitable environments for our LGBTQIA+ populations.
