The Saskatoon Council on Aging has partnered with OUTSaskatoon to examine ways to meet the needs of older lesbians, gay men, bisexuals and transgender individuals living in residential care environments.
This project reached out to the community to identify the challenges faced by both LGBT older adults and residential care environments to offer practical solutions to support the development of training and policies considerate of the needs, fears and preferences of the LGBT older adults.
A training manual and information will be provided to the residential care environment facilities in Saskatoon to support their efforts at creating safe and friendly environments for everyone.
