On Salt Spring Island and wanting to learn more about the experiences of LGBTQ elders in residential care? Join us Sunday, Dec. 6 at the Harbour House Hotel (121 Upper Ganges Rd) at 2pm to hear from Lambda award-winner Dr. Ashley Heaslip on her research in this area. Tea and cookies will be provided. Free admittance, no registration required.
Dr. Heaslip’s recent study with LGTBQ-identified elders within a residential care facility in Vancouver, BC broadens our understanding of care of the aging, sexual diversity, and respectful health care environments. It offers creative solutions to health care providers, residential care staff, and decision-makers on how to better meet the needs of LGTBQ elders in residential care.
