Aging with Pride
We offer public education and consultations to organizations wishing to make their services and facilities more welcoming and accepting to LGBTQ2+ seniors. More information about our public education services can be found here.
We offered the first Aging with Pride Conference in partnership with SPECTRUM, Waterloo Region’s Rainbow Community Space, in 2015. In 2017, we presented Aging with Pride 2.0 in partnership with SPECTRUM and Hospice of Waterloo Region. This one day conference was intended for service providers working with older adults who identify as LGBTQ2+. Participants gained insight into the unique experiences of LGBTQ2+ seniors, a checklist for making accessible spaces, and practical information from multiple training sessions on a range of related topics.
