Improving Aging Servies for LGBT Older Adults
July 30, 2015 @ 9:00 am - 1:30 pm
Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) older adults make up a significant, and growing, share of America’s 65+ population. The numbers of LGBT older adults are expected to double in size over the next several decades, reaching more than 3 million by 2030. This means that aging services providers will increasingly be called on to provide services and supports that meet the unique needs of LGBT older adults.
SAGE’s National Resource Center on LGBT Aging in collaboration with AARP, the Pennsylvania Department of Aging, and Pennsylvania Link to Aging and Disability Resources invite you to attend this timely training.
Topics covered in the training include:
|Culture, needs, and concerns of LGBT older adults; Why LGBT older adults are less likely to access health and social services practices; and, policy and practice areas for increasing inclusiveness and safety for LGBT older adults.
