As LGBTQI+ people age and need supportive services to meet their aging goals, many of them question whether it is safe to share that they are LGBTQI+ due to stigma they have witnessed and experienced over their lifetimes.
When planning for end-of-life care, it is crucial to ensure LGBTQI+ people feel they can come out and be their authentic selves so that we can meet their unique needs.
Visibility Matters is a training for our community’s aging care providers, formal and informal, to ensure that older LGBTQI+ adults receive aging-related services that are welcoming, respectful, and safe for them. This session helps aging care professionals and volunteers become more informed, sensitive to, and supportive of the needs of LGBTQI+ older adults and their families.
