LGBTQ Elders Deserve Respectful Care

Research shows that upwards of five percent of long-term care residents are members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and/or transgender community. The Human Rights Campaign Foundation and SAGE believe that most long-term care communities want LGBTQ elders to feel welcome and get the care they need. That’s why the Long-term Care Equality Index, also known as the LEI, exists. The LEI encourages and helps long-term care communities adopt policies and best practices that provide culturally competent and responsive care to LGBTQ elders. Participating in the LEI creates an environment committed to not just ending discrimination for the LGBTQ community but advancing inclusion for all residents, visitors, and employees.
