Community Education Seminars
Our one hour seminars are valuable for mainstream and LGBT community members, employers, service providers, caregivers and support networks. Here’s a sample of a few of our most requested seminars.
The mainstream community has limited knowledge of the psychosocial, cultural, historical and economic issues facing LGBT elders. This seminar will explore some of the unique characteristics of this population; generational differences, similarities to mainstream aging, policy and planning issues for service providers, and suggestions for reaching this hard to reach population.
Caregiving 101: What you need to know about Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Caregivers
When does helping out turn into caregiving? A recent survey indicated that one in four midlife LGBTs provides care for a loved one parent/partner/spouse/friend/relative more than the general population where one in five adults is a caregiver. How does sexual orientation or gender identity impact caregivers, care recipients and their care? How can we help caregivers maintain a healthy balance between caring for others and caring for themselves?
