Santa Rey Region Meeting: Creating Inclusive Communities: LGBT Aging and Older Adults

Wednesday, June 28, 2017, 11:30 AM - 1:30 PM PT

This meeting is designed to help meet the concern that while organizations that work with older adults are open to working with LGBT people, they are not always sure of how to provide the best possible services. Many LGBT people hide their sexual orientation and gender identity, and it is especially important for anyone working in residential or in-home care to understand that the home is a safe space for LGBT people. Many people who work with younger LGBT people do not necessarily know the best practices for working with LGBT older adults. During this training, participants will get familiarized with LGBT history and culture, learn how that affects LGBT older adults in care, and learn some best practices for working with LGBT older adults.

Presenter: Tim Johnston, Assistant Director Social Enterprise & Training, SAGE
