Do you serve consumers who are lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender? Does it matter? Are you unintentionally causing someone to retreat into the closet because they fear they won’t receive compassionate care?
This day-long conference will teach you successful strategies you and your facility are welcoming, inclusive and supportive of everyone. It will shed light on the unique issues facing LGBT elders and will help professionals and all care providers realize we need care with understanding and compassion.
This conference will be held Thursday, May 16, 2013 in La Crosse, Wisconsin.
