Welcome to the LGBTTQI Home Care Access Project!

Who are We?

Why are We Doing This Research?

  • Lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, two-spirited, queer, and intersex (LGBTTQI) communities experience unique barriers to receiving good quality health care services.
  • We know very little about how these communities experience home care services specifically, as well as service providers’ experiences working with LGBTTQI clients.
  • This research hopes to increase what we know about LGBTTQI access to community home care services, with the long-term goal of improving home care for these communities. 

March, 2016 update on project!


Check out our new information-sharing materials: A Zine, illustrating the project's key findings, and a 'Queering Home Care' document, where we integrate findings to offer a queer perpsective on Patient Values. Both can be found here and under the 'Research findings' tab.
