Three million Americans over 55 identify themselves as gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender (GLBT). GLBT older adults have faced tremendous challenges during the course of their lifetime and continue to during their post-retirement years. What are best practices in working with GLBT seniors in nursing homes, assisted living, adult day care and other healthcare settings? What are their unique needs and how are they sensitively met? Join us for this interactive, informative and fun diversity training class.


This course is suitable for both beginning and intermediate levels.  There is an introduction to the LGBT population and their history, which is necessary and appropriate for beginners.  It also applies to intermediate levels as it expands upon the introductory level, focusing on the role of the professional as educator, advocate & clinician and it pertains to understanding the history and how to effectively work with this population to establish trust and deliver positive outcomes.
