Community talks about care for gay and lesbian seniors

Gay and lesbian seniors are fearful health authorities and care homes aren’t adequately equipped to meet even their basic needs.

That’s according to the Aging Out report by Vancouver resource centre Qmunity, which will be the topic of a Nanaimo event this summer about the care of gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgendered and queer seniors.

A free roundtable discussion, hosted by Crimson Coast Dance Society and Central Island B.C. Community Response Networks, will be held at the Nanaimo Harbourfront Library July 5, about changing culture in central Vancouver Island private and public health care.
