Project Visibility – Free Community Presentation
LGBT Older Adults are five times less likely to access senior services, due to fear of discrimination, neglect, or abuse. This training helps service providers become more informed, sensitive to, and supportive of the needs of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender older adults and their families.
Thursday, Nov. 8, 10-11:30
At The Jewish Community Center – 3800 E. River Rd.
Project Visibility, a national award winner, was developed by Boulder County Aging Services, and includes a DVD, structured discussion and manual with practical solutions for improving care. This event will help spread the word so that more care facilities are aware of this free training they can choose for their staff.
This presentation is co-sponsored by Pima Council on Aging, the LGBT Jewish Inclusion Project, and Wingspan Senior Pride.
Pima Council On Aging, in collaboration with Wingspan Senior Pride and other community agencies, offers this cultural competency training for staff at assisted living facilities, nursing homes, and home health agencies, to increase awareness of the strengths and needs of LGBT older adults.
