How to Better Serve LGB and T Older Adults
By: Marsha Berry, MEd, CAEd, Board member and trainer for Training to Serve
We all hope to be welcome when we walk through the door for health care, housing or community services, yet we know LGBT older adults fear, and sometimes receive, poor service and abuse when looking for help. This webinar will offer perspectives, skills and resources to support you as you interact with LGB and T older adults.
- Define lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender
- Describe issues that LGB and T older adults may face based on their place in LGBT history
- State best practices for working with LGB and T older adults
- Name resources available for providers of older adult programs and services
