The Best LGBT Senior Care

LGBT Senior Care Services
In-home caregivers help with a number of tasks. These include general tasks such as housekeeping and personal hygiene, and also extend beyond to include the specific needs of each individual. Alegre caregivers provide the best LGBT senior care by undergoing specialized training and ensuring privacy, confidentiality, and consent every step of the way.
The benefits of LGBT senior care services include:
Specially Trained Caregivers
In addition to receiving regular home caregiving training such as First Aid and CPR, caregivers at Alegre Home Care also receive LGBT Cultural Humility Training.
Home caregivers can help support LGBTQ seniors by advocating for their rights during medical exams and procedures.
LGBTQ seniors on average experience more loneliness than their peers. Home caregivers help by facilitating outings, gatherings with friends, and community functions, as well as helping the seniors in their care connect to the people in their social circles.
Understanding and Empathy
Compassion and empathy are two cornerstones of caregiving, but caregivers from an LGBT-certified home care agency have an extra layer of understanding about the particular concerns facing LGBT seniors, such as discrimination.
LGBT seniors will receive special confidentiality procedures that go above the normal privacy expectations of HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996).
