LGBT Cultural Competency Training – Hosted by ElderSource Institute
March 30, 2017
12:00 pm -1:30 pm
10688 Old St. Augustine Rd. Jacksonville, FL 32257
Our nation has a growing population of aging adults with increasing needs. As any other older adult, LGBT seniors face the typical challenges of aging. However, because of their sexual orientation and/or gender identity they are at a higher risk for abuse, discrimination, isolation and exploitation. LGBT elders are five times less likely to access services than non-LGBT seniors. This training is targeted towards community members and professionals who work with older adults and want to be knowledgeable and aware of the needs and concerns of LGBT elders.
The LGBT Lens: Challenges and Issues in LGBT Caregiving
Thursday, April 13
6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
UNF, Adam W. Herbert University Center
12000 Alumni Dr. | Jacksonville, FL
ElderSource Institute will be hosting a very important Community Conversation Event. “The LGBT Lens: Challenges and Issues in LGBT care giving.” Our keynote speaker, Christopher MacLellan, has been an ardent advocate for caregivers since finding himself in the care giving role for his partner who lost his battle with cancer. Chris will present on his experience as a LGBT caregiver and will also share a wonderful, Pulitzer Prize nominated documentary, “In Sickness and In Health: A Couple’s Final Journey.” The film features him and his partner during the last year of his partners’ life.
In addition, we are bringing together a highly experienced panel to further the discussion on care giving, focusing on personal experiences, finding support and resources as well as legal considerations. We look forward to having you join us!
This event is sponsored by:
Randy Meg Kammer and Jeffry Wollitz
