“SAGE and HRCF believe that most long-term care communities do not want LGBT older adults to face discrimination or have to worry about the care that they will receive. But these communities may be unsure how to protect their LGBT residents from discrimination, provide them with optimal care and extend a warm welcome to allay their concerns.”

The Long-term Care Equality Index (LEI) is a new program of SAGE and the HRC Foundation designed to recognize leaders providing LGBT inclusive and welcoming long-term care residential care. This fact sheet provides an overview of the program and how you can get involved. Learn more at www.theLEI.org
