Building Real Communities with Engagement from LGBTQ+ Older Adults

Senior living communities need to reflect, address, and attract diverse population preference. As many LGBTQ+ older adults have lived a lifetime of challenges and discrimination, which often persist as they enter the long-term care system, there are great opportunities for senior living leaders to consider unmet expectations from these individuals. Providers are increasingly tapping into these unmet demands by addressing barriers to promote equitable, person-centered resident engagement. Learn how your community can create safe and inclusive environments for LGBTQ+ individuals that draw on their wisdom, allow them to participate in community, and receive the support they need as they age to finally build true person-centered care.

At the end of this event, attendees will be able to:
• Understand the key terms being used by LGBTQ+ older adults to better engage them as prospects and residents
• Recognize the historical and current context LGBTQ+ older adults navigate to help address the barriers preventing them from engaging fully as residents
• Discover practical resources to enhance engagement among LGBTQ+ older adult residents and to advocate as individuals for LGBTQ+ interventions
