This interactive session is part of a project by the Coalition to provide older adults with tools to make informed decisions to deal with this critical part of life’s journeyand to be independent during this stage of life.
Examined will be how attitudes adjust or change when encountering new circumstancesand what is relied upon to make or not to make decisions.
By the end of the presentation/workshop participants will learn;
- how other older adults in general deal with stressful or changing times,
- what they expressed is needed to make the best choice under the circumstances,
- how to make decisions to respond to stressful or changing times,
- what to know to deal with new situations,
- how to recognize the uniqueness of each person in the aging process, and,
- what options are important in making an informed decision as you age.

ILCA Seminar* "Silver Rainbow: Discrimination Against Gay and Lesbian Seniors in Long Term
Thursday, December 4th, 2014
12:00 pm – 1:00 pm
Institute, 263 McCaul St., 4th Floor Classroom
THE UNIVERSITY OF TORONTO’S - Institute for Life Course and Aging is pleased to present SILVER RAINBOW: DISCRIMINATION AGAINST GAY AND LESBIAN SENIORS IN LONG TERM CARE
Gay and lesbian seniors are denying their sexual orientation or living “closeted” lives in order to protect themselves from discrimination in long term care. Services and supports are not designed to meet the unique needs of these seniors who are often incapable of advocating for themselves because of fear. Research findings from a systematic review that investigated the experiences and needs of gay and lesbian seniors in long term care will be presented.
Ronald Gonsalves MSW, RSW, has recently completed his MSW in Gerontology at the Factor-Inwentash Faculty of Social Work (FIFSW), University of Toronto. He has worked for over 20 years at Community living Toronto supporting adults and seniors with mental and intellectual disabilities in both residential and community settings. His career goal is to support seniors in long term care and community setting through counselling and case management.
Seminars are free, held at the Institute, 263 McCaul St., 4th Floor Classroom.
Please RSVP as seating is limited. This seminar will be webcast and can be accessed at: http://hosting2.epresence.tv/AGING
