Current Events

Senior Care Communities Panel Flyer

Finding A LGBT Inclusive Care Community Panel

March 21st from 3:30pm to 5:00pm on Zoom

Finding a senior living community is never an easy task. It can become exponentially more difficult when you are a member of the LGBTQ+ community. Knowing the right questions to ask about healthcare, policies, and bigoty can be just as difficult as getting the answers. Capitol Hill Village is hosting a panel where you can learn from senior living professionals about what to look out for, who to talk to, and how to find the best place for you. All are invited to join us.

 

Our panelists are Lisa Friedman, a residential care specialist, Ames Simmons, LGBTQ policy consultant, and Makeda Vanderpuije, executive director at LeadingAge DC.

DC Villages Committee on Safe Spaces for LGBT Older Adults

The DC Villages Committee on Safe Spaces for LGBT Older Adults was developed to ensure Villages are spaces where LGBTQ older adults feel safe and welcome. Representatives from each of the Villages (Village employees, volunteers, or members, and may be in the LGBTQ community or an ally) are working on an ongoing basis to discuss strengths, areas in need for improvement and goals to work towards. The Committee seek guidance and tools from experts as well as volunteers within the LGBTQ community.  If you are interested in learning more, please contact sross@capitolhillvillage.org or call 202-543-1778 x204.
