LGBT older people often experience negative reactions in care

Outhouse is proud to be a part of this European project which aims to promote and support the social inclusion of LGBT older people who use care and wellbeing services. The project aims to do this through positive interactions with educational institutions that prepare future professionals to work with older people from the LGBT community. 

LGBT older people often experience negative reactions in care and needs are often overlooked. As a result in some cases, they feel forced to hide their sexual identity and are forced back into the closet. It is important that future health and social care staff recognise the importance of sexual identity and orientation in their assessment and care practices.

BEING ME provides educators in care and wellbeing with a set of learning resources to promote inclusive care for LGBT older people among their students.
