New clarity regarding Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender
(LGBT) rights in long-term care settings will mean stronger
protections and healthier environments, and it will go a long way
to ease the fear many in the LGBT community feel as they age.
Therefore we are pleased to announce that
SB 219 (Wiener)
,
which clarifies anti-discrimination protections for LGBT seniors in
Residential Care Facilities for the Elderly (RCFEs) and skilled nursing
facilities, has been signed into law.
for LGBT Residents
