Caring for Those Who Care: Meeting the Needs of LGBT Caregivers

This webinar will help providers further their understanding of the experiences of LGBT caregivers and improve their multicultural capacities to meet caregiver’s needs. This webinar is part of the cultural competency training curriculum created by the staff of the Diverse Elders Coalition and its six member organizations, with the support of a grant from The John A. Hartford Foundation. Much of the research and many statistics cited in the training were the result of a 15-month planning grant, during which the coalition completed a literature review, a survey of diverse family caregivers and a series of focus groups with family caregivers in diverse communities. The research was conducted nationwide, in eight languages, and was led by the older adults and caregivers represented by the coalition.

Participants of this webinar will be able to:

  • Identify and address the unique needs and caregiving realities of LGBT caregivers;
  • Gain an understanding of how culture impacts LGBT caregivers’ perceptions of care and their health outcomes; and,
  • Develop skills to deliver LGBT-competent, person-directed care to improve health outcomes among LGBT caregivers.
