The health care needs of LGBT residents are provided for with certification
Green Hill, a senior living space in West Orange, is celebrating its second year as the only senior care provider in the state to earn a Sagecare Platinum Certification. “Seniors are one of the most marginalized groups in our culture,” said Amy Simon, communications director. “LGBT seniors are the most vulnerable when it comes to health care services and safe and welcoming housing.”
Green Hill has set a goal to help develop more accredited options in New Jersey for aging members of the LGBT community, so the facility is now working with the senior care industry leaders and the LGBT community. Their initiative, to establish an LGBT Senior Housing and Care program, is intended as a best-practices model of care for both new and existing senior communities throughout the state.
Green Hill will be hosting their second annual Senior Housing And Care Expo on May 19, 2019. It will offer educational seminars, vendors, and a networking lunch. It will be held at their facility at 103 Pleasant Valley Way, West Orange, NJ 07052. For more information, go to their website, greenhill.com
