Understanding And Solving Inequities for LGBTQ in Senior Care

Updated on

Talk about fire power! We are blessed to have three amazing influencers for those providing care for older adults, especially for those belonging to minority groups. 

We have members from Denver Regional Council of Government (DRCOG), CU Anschutz and Christian Living Communities. 

In this episode we talk about: 

  • LGBTQ people face disparities and inequity in healthcare, housing, employment and social services
  • A person-centered approach that honors people’s rights and individuality has the power to transform care for older adults and people with disabilities, especially for those belonging to minority groups
  • All of us have the power to learn about our implicit attitudes, reflect on them, and make positive changes, in order to ensure social justice and equity for all

Our amazing group will talk about real world implementation of Project Visibility. We have a wonderful team member from Christian Living Community to share with their implementation.
