About Us!


The goal of the Long-Term Care Equality Index (LEI) is to promote equitable and inclusive care for LGBTQ older people in residential long-term care communities. SAGE and the Human Rights Campaign Foundation believe that most long-term care communities do not want LGBT older adults to face discrimination or have to worry about the care that they will receive. But these communities may be unsure how to protect their LGBT residents from discrimination, provide them with optimal care and extend a warm welcome to allay their concerns. The LEI will encourage and help long-term care communities to adopt policies and best practices that provide culturally competent and responsive care to LGBT older adults.
