“Sadly, many older LGBTQ+ people feel unsafe being themselves when they seek the care they need. This is partly due to the lack of federal protections for LGBTQ+ identities and fear they will face discrimination in long-term care settings. Due to this, it is important to be prepared with information to help you be sure the long-term care community you chose will be inclusive.”

Moving into a long-term care community is a significant life change and requires someone to consider several factors when deciding where to live. When the time comes for extra support while aging, everyone deserves to feel welcome and safe accessing long-term care.
