Quality Improvement Series
The LGBTQ Senior — Inclusion through Person-Centered Care
Thursday, August 5 | 1-2 PM ET
Many LGBTQ people and their loved ones have big questions about senior living: Will I be safe in this community? Will I be listened to? Will what’s important to me be understood? Communities and caregivers want to be able to strongly answer “yes” to all of this, as they want to for every resident. But it takes some education and effort to ensure all residents have a high quality of life. Person-centered care approaches show success in reaching this goal. Hear from communities that have been successful in including LGBTQ seniors and making them feel at home. Plus, earn 1 NAB/NCERS CEU for attending this webinar (pending approval).
