OLGBT Advisory Committee

We recognize that a significant proportion of home care service users are members of our senior LGBTTQI communities. As a collaborator on the project, the Senior Pride Network (SPN) has worked with the research team to develop an independent advisory committee to focus on the issues relevant to aging LGBTTQI communities.

What is home care?

  • Any form of care received in the home.
  • This could be formal care arranged through a Community Care Access Centre, or a community support or social service agency.
  • This could also be informal care provided by family, friends, and/or community.
  • Some examples are personal care, meal preparation, laundry, light housecleaning, meal delivery, shopping, transportation to medical appointments, home safety assessment, and physiotherapy.
