Saskatoon Council on Aging - Age-friendly community

Research Project on LGBTI Older Adults

The Saskatoon Council on Aging has partnered with OUTSaskatoon  to examine ways to meet the needs of older lesbians, gay men, bisexuals and transgender individuals living in residential care environments.

This project reached out to the community to identify the challenges faced by both LGBT older adults and residential care environments to offer practical solutions to support the development of training and policies considerate of the needs, fears and preferences of the LGBT older adults.

The following resources support their efforts at creating safe and friendly environments for everyone in residential care environment facilities.
