Hillside Terrace - LGBTQ+ Friendly Senior Community Fosters Acceptance

LGBTQ Friendly Senior Living Ann Arbor

For many LGBTQ+ seniors, the prospect of transitioning to a senior living community can be daunting. Past experiences of discrimination or a fear of being unwelcome can cloud your decision-making. You’ll enjoy our safe and inclusive haven for LGBTQ+ residents in Ann Arbor. 

Building a Foundation of Trust:

The cornerstone of any LGBTQ+ friendly senior living community is a commitment to staff sensitivity training. Staff members are equipped to understand the unique experiences and challenges faced by LGBTQ+ elders. This training covers topics like LGBTQ+ terminology, cultural competency, and the importance of pronoun usage. Residents feel a sense of security knowing our staff is knowledgeable and respectful of their identities.

Fostering Community:

Sensitivity training is just the first step!  You’ll feel the spirit of inclusion through social events and activities planned with the LGBTQ+ experience in mind. Rainbow film nights, potlucks celebrating Pride Month, and LGBTQ+ history lectures are just a few examples. These activities not only provide entertainment but also create opportunities for residents to connect with like-minded individuals and build meaningful friendships.

The Power of Shared Experience:

Resident support groups offer a safe space for LGBTQ+ seniors to discuss their experiences, concerns, and triumphs. Sharing stories of resilience and navigating the challenges of aging within the LGBTQ+ community fosters a sense of belonging and understanding.

Picture a resident who never felt safe joining a social group, now participating in lively discussions about LGBTQ+ history and current events. You’ll find a space where LGBTQ+ seniors can be themselves, free from judgment, and surrounded by acceptance.

Building a Brighter Future:

The creation of LGBTQ+ friendly senior living communities is a significant step towards ensuring the well-being of LGBTQ+ elders. By prioritizing sensitivity training, fostering inclusive activities, and offering resident support groups, we’re working with you to build a future where LGBTQ+ seniors can live authentically and age with dignity.
