Aging with Pride
We offered the first Aging with Pride Conference in partnership with SPECTRUM, Waterloo Region’s Rainbow Community Space in 2015.
We are now pleased to be partnering with SPECTRUM and Hospice of Waterloo Region to offer Aging with Pride 2.0. This one day conference will take place on September 19, 2017 and is intended for service providers working with older adults who identify as LGBTQ+. Participants will come away with insight into the unique experiences of LGBTQ+ seniors, a checklist for making accessible spaces, and practical information from multiple training sessions on a range of related topics.
