Ensuring Dignity! PACE (Programs of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly) Research shows that our LGBT aging population is dramatically underserved and presented with numerous barriers when seeking assistance for Health Care/Long-term Care needs and wants. Education is one conduit to identify and reduce this blatant form of ageism/bias. Thank you for this opportunity for education and growth.
