FUNDAMENTALS FOR LGBT SENIOR CARE
FUNDAMENTALS FOR LGBT SENIOR CARE
More Info

When accessing health care or social services, many LGBT elders hide their sexual orientation for fear of discrimination. This can result in higher instances of life limiting problems, inadequate medical care or lack of access to other essential services, even when they are most needed. This training will provide senior care specialists with crucial information to enable them to:

  • Identify the life-long impact of LGBT people�s experiences of rejection, discrimination, hostility and fear, and how it impacts them in later life.
  • Understand the myths and the facts about not being "straight".
  • Understand how to be a compassionate caregiver for LGBT patients.
When: Friday, March 7, 2014 9:00 am � 12:30 pm
Where: 2312 Wilton Dr., Wilton Manors, FL, 33305
Cost: $60 per person

We are currently hoping to acquire a logo for the scholarship fund. If you have a skill for graphic design please submit your design for the James Lopresti Mental Health Scholarship Fund to Bryan Wilson at bwilson@sunserve.org and have a chance at being selected!
