It is estimated that there are at least 2.5 million Americans who are over age 60 and identify as LGBT.  LGBT older adults face the typical challenges of aging in combination with the threat of discrimination and abuse due to their sexual orientation or gender identity.  Participants will learn the challenges that are faced by the LGBT community as well as ways to make long term care services more inclusive to them.  Approved for 1.0 credit for RNs, SWs, CALAs, and LNHAs.
