Webinar: LGBT elders after COVID: Healing, emerging, connecting
Evidence has shown that loneliness has enormous impact on the physical and emotional wellbeing of older adults. These concerns may be more pronounced for LGBT Elders, who faced isolation at higher levels as well as marked physical and behavioral health disparities prior to the pandemic. As the world begins to emerge from mandated social distancing, what kind of supports can assist older LGBT adults in developing life-saving connections to care providers and social networks? This webinar will describe the effects of isolation for LGBT Elders, self-care strategies to improve connectedness, and supportive therapeutic interventions to increase wellness, interdependence, self-efficacy, and the essential sense of mattering that makes life meaningful.
