For LGBTQ older people, remaining in the communities they call home requires access to welcoming and inclusive long-term care services, such as independent living, assisted living and skilled nursing care. Thankfully, long-term care communities (LTCCs) have a new opportunity to lead in developing policies and practices that promote welcoming and inclusive communities for LGBTQ people and their families.

This brief produced the SAGE and the Human Rights Campaign Foundation explores the need for inclusive long-term care residential communities and how the Long-term Care Equality Index supports these efforts.
