What Is The Project?
In 2023, Capitol Hill Village began a project focused on LGBT inclusion among long-term care communities in the DC area, starting with CCRCs. CCRC is the abbreviation for Continuing Care Retirement Community, the definition from AARP is "a long-term care option for older people who want to stay in the same place through different phases of the aging process."
Continuing Care Retirement Community Survey and Results
In February of 2023, we surveyed DC LGBT residents 50 years and older to learn more about the experiences, challenges, and concerns of LGBT older adults as it relates to aging and CCRCs. On March 29th we hosted a discussion of the survey results, their implications, and the project’s next steps.
