Past Event

Aging in Community: Strategies for LGBTQ Seniors and Beyond

The future for LGBTQ seniors could be quite different from the past.

Join us for a discussion about the challenges and new opportunities facing LGBTQ seniors. We'll hear about the latest research into what seniors need to age and thrive at home, even if their health worsens or they experience cognitive changes. Our panelists will also discuss how and why LGBTQ seniors experience health disparities and high levels of isolation, while also under-utilizing existing aging services right here in the Bay Area.
