Partnership by Design: new project aims to improve LGBTQ elders' lives
May 2019 | American Society on Aging, interview by Tim Johnston (SAGE)
San Francisco’s Openhouse (www.openhouse-sf.org) and On Lok (www.onlok.org) are partnering to help the city’s LGBTQ older adults age with dignity, independence and pride. The two nonprofits are co-designing a program that addresses two critical issues in this community: accessing much needed aging services, and ameliorating the LGBTQ elders’ fears that life in a nursing home would drive them back into the closet.
