LGBT Aging: Opportunities and Awareness

October 18 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Free

LeadingAge New Jersey and the New Jersey Hospital Association (NJHA) have teamed up with Assurant Learning & Performance Solutions, LLC and SAGE, the nation’s oldest and largest organization advocating for LGBT older adults to offer members a complimentary webinar on Oct. 18 at 10 a.m.

This webinar will focus on the following:

  • Marketing and Census Benefits – There are at least 1.5 million LGBT people who are 65 and older; by 2030 that number is expected to reach 7 million. New Jersey currently has limited LGBT friendly housing options for older adults. Increasing your capacity and earning a SAGECare Credential will provide direct marketing opportunities for your organization.
  • Health Outcomes for LGBT Older Adults – Review of research on LGBT older adults, including health outcomes and quality of life issues.
  • Regulatory Implications – An overview of the nursing home Requirements of Participation (ROPs) that specifically address culturally competent care and protections for LGBT residents. A discussion of how these requirements can be used by other senior care organizations as guidelines.
  • SAGECare Credentialing – Program and cost information on LGBT Aging Training that will result in being listed on the SAGE Website and the use of the SAGECare credential at your facility and on marketing materials.

We look forward to having you join us for this initial learning session which will serve as a springboard for additional opportunities for advancing our organizations’ role in serving older adults.
