Bruce Rosenblatt, founder of Senior Housing Solutions, the first locally owned senior housing placement company in Southwest Florida, has completed LGBT Cultural Competency Training through SAGECare to be inclusive to all individuals who are seeking senior housing placement advice and to be sensitive to locating care facilities that are non-discriminatory and open to all people.
“The training program really opened my eyes to the discrimination people face as LGBT individuals age and require care,” states Bruce Rosenblatt, owner of Senior Housing Solutions. “As an organization, we want people to know we are aware of these concerns and will help people find a senior living facility where they will feel comfortable and welcomed.”
