On November 19, 2016, The Care Plan partnered with Affinity Community Services on a LGBTQ+ Care Fair. Hosted by Villa At Windsor Park. The event featured LGBTQ affirming vendors including AARP, the Alzheimer’s Association, Howard Brown Health Centers, Renewal Care, Bethany Retirement Home, and the Hyde Park Village.

Attendees participated in educational workshops relating to family caregivers, how to create a care plan, and aging in place. The need for LGBTQ+ affirming providers continues to rise in the Chicago area and across the country. Approximately 2.4 elders in the United States identify as a member of LGBTQ+ communities.

The Care Plan is dedicated to increasing resources and support for all older adults. We understand the unique challenges faced by members of LGBTQ+ communities.
