Capitol Hill Village is beginning 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.”

We are kicking off this project with an anonymous survey of DC LGBT residents 60 and older. Our goal is to learn more about the experiences, challenges, and concerns of LGBT+ older adults as it relates to aging and Continuing Care Retirement Communities. Anyone who completes the survey will be entered in a raffle for a $25 gift card!

The survey will be accessible at from February 1st to 22nd! If you prefer to complete the survey via phone, contact Sophia Ross at or call 202-543-1778 x204.
