Completing a needs assessment is the first step towards making your older adult facility a more inclusive space for LGBTQ older adults and their families. Contact us and we’ll set up a meeting, go over a brief questionnaire, and provide an initial assessment.
Garden State Equality provides consultation on federal and state law as they relate to the older adult industry and SOGI (Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity/Gender Expression). We can share legal expertise in this area and help you develop and audit your policies.
We offer trainings for clinicians and older adult professionals on LGBTQ cultural competency, legal issues and policy. Topics include terminology, basics of sexual orientation and gender identity, LGBTQ patient walkthroughs/role playing with LGBTQ identities and building safe and affirming older adult facilities. We tailor our presentations to address the needs of your facility.
Other Speaking Engagements
Representatives from Garden State Equality are available to speak to older adult professionals, as well as to residents and community members.
