Summary

An account of Lifeview Residential Care’s continuing journey to becoming an inclusive and culturally safe aged care provider for all but especially for older Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Intersex (LGBTI) people.

With the assistance of the IAP2’s Public Participation Spectrum Model, plans were drawn up, reviews completed and consumer engagement commenced. The ‘How’ applied to a complex, often compliant and ‘hidden’ cohort of LGBTI consumers and their respective communities, to get to the ‘What’ – what will make a difference for LGBTI elders in our residential aged care homes.

Join us on our complex and continuing journey of enlightenment, our many stumbling blocks, and the theory and the practice behind our achievements.
