Project Visibility
The goal of Project Visibility is to co-create an aging services community that is informed, sensitive to and supportive of LGBT elders.
 “Project Visibility: Person-centered Care for LGBT Older Adults” is available 24/7 as a web-based training. This 30-minute interactive course is designed for managers and employees of nursing homes, assisted living homes and home health care agencies.
Project Visibility LIVE Trainings and Materials.  The training’s cornerstone is a 21-minute, or abridged 13-minute film in which courageous lesbians, gay men and a trans gender woman speak about their lives, their strengths, wishes and concerns about the aging services network. A Power Point helps to guide the discussion. Trainees will learn the simple necessary steps to ensure that their service or agency is LGBT inclusive.
