Accessing Aged & Home Support Services
With demand for Aged Care and Home Support Services from LGBTI+ people increasing, so too is the need for ageing and care services to be able to meet these needs in a culturally sensitive manner.
There are organisations and services that are taking a pro-active step towards better understanding and inclusion for older LGBTI+ people’s needs. Some are doing this by way of ensuring their staff receive awareness and sensitivity training, hiring of LGBTI+ workers, changing and developing policies that are inclusive of LGBTI+ people.
If you require information about services that support older LGBTI+ people, as well as what questions you should ask of an Aged Care provider, please contact Lucy, our LGBTI+ Project Officer on 8168 8000 or at firstname.lastname@example.org for a confidential chat.
