Lavender Seniors of the East Bay

Lavender Seniors of the East Bay began in 1994 by a small group of seniors increasingly concerned with a lack of services and legal protections for LGBT elders. Many of them had attempted to seek appropriate mental health care but given up; others only saw a doctor when it was an emergency and they had no other choice.In 1996 the American Medical Association made a public call to improve the education of health care personnel regarding best practices for improving care provided to LGBT patients. Thus, we developed an in-depth curriculum for care providers. It was fine-tuned over a decade, used to educate hundreds of providers across the San Francisco East Bay and is nationally recognized for its quality.These courses are our curriculum translated to the web.Over the years, Lavender Seniors has helped change the lives of thousands. We continue to serve through advocacy, education and peer supported activities. We have a 12 year old LGBT-specific Friendly Visitor program supported by the Alameda County Area Agency on Aging and we host monthly potlucks and discussion groups. We are highly inclusive and applaud all who seek to improve the quality of lives of LGBT Seniors
