22 8. Aged Care & LGBTI 22

23 Aged Care & LGBTI: Thoughts of respondents All heterosexual carers should have an understanding of the feelings of lesbians/ gays. Anti-homophobia institutions are needed. I think it is wrong to include T&B person in this group. They have more rights than lesbians & gays. a lesbian woman Concern for ourselves and others if we both or one of us need nursing home care and how will we be treated in a faith based facility or any facility for that matter. We are afraid of discrimination by nursing home staff who are homophobic. a gay man As far as I am aware there is no specific LGBTI aged care network of facilities on the north coast. a gay As we can be less likely to have children or extended family support, services that recognise and respect LGBTI people are very important. a lesbian woman Better access to a useful information for retired LGBTI. - a gay man There are a lot of good things happening re inclusion from a national level and it would be good to see some LGBTI programs at a grass roots level - i.e. training programs for staff who would deliver services to older LGBTI residents and activities/ social programs for older LGBTI clientele. - a gay man Focus On The Care Needs Of The Individual. Their Sexuality Or Gender Identity Is Irrelevant. a transgender person There shouldn't be exemptions from anti-discrimination law for church-based service providers that are funded by government. My taxes should not be given to any organisation that is allowed to discriminate against me. a lesbian woman There are no services. This includes public hospitals that continue to exclude GLBTI partners into intensive care. a gay man Just that any facility needs to be tolerant of the lifestyles of aged members of our community. - an intersex person 23

24 Key words. The LGBTI communities strongly feel they desire recognition & respect, and aged care operators should provide equality in care without discrimination. They feel that aged care staff must be trained & educated to serve LGBTI individuals. recognition & respect afraid of discrimination training for the staff / training on diversity and acceptance focus on care / equality in care need to develop choice show that you are LGBTI friendly social and community needs 24

25 9. UnitingCare Ageing & LGBTI 25

26 Building a community connection There was a positive response for the work that UnitingCare Ageing is doing with the LGBTI communities. I'm glad people are starting to talk about and plan for the needs of ageing LGBTI people, as I believe there is a real, unmet need. a lesbian woman Thanks UnitingCare Ageing. a lesbian woman This is a complex issue which deserves considerable attention from our industry. The work UnitingCare Ageing is doing to promote LGBTI issues in aged care (and the wider community) is admirable. a bisexual person UnitingCare Ageing will do a great job to meet the needs of this population - you certainly provided a magnificent Community Aged Care Package (CACP) to my late grandmother who was Jewish. a lesbian woman 26

27 10. Barriers 27

28 LGBTI Opinion about disclosure of identity I prefer not to disclose my sexuality / gender when engaging with health and/or aged care services 35% 18% 32% 11% 18% 17% 4% Strongly Disagree Disagree Unsure Agree Strongly Agree Does not apply More than one-third of the participants i.e. 35% agree that they prefer not to disclose their sexuality and/ or gender when engaging with health and/ or aged care services.

Source: Opinions Please rate your agreement level on the scale of Strongly Disagree to Strongly Agree Lesbian n=105, Gay n=75 31

32 Opinions as reflected through the words of participants I m concerned about how my partner and I will be treated once we need aged care - particularly in an institutional setting; if aged and vulnerable, how will we manage if staff or other patients display hostility or homophobia. a lesbian woman One is met with a lot of prejudice e.g., I was once told by a staff member of XXXX Care that I wouldn't be entitled to community care irrespective of age or disability. a lesbian woman I live in XX and it is a very conservative area. My local church doesn't know I'm gay and they would be biased if they did. There is not social network for me, or general help. But I live with that because I'm happy with the surrounds-forests, fauna, etc... a gay man 32

33 11.Community Needs 33

34 Needs of LGBTI Communities A small number of the respondents, 8% are currently looking for aged care services for either themselves or their partners. Another small proportion of the LGBTI participants have either previously used aged care packages or are currently using the community care packages. I am looking for aged care services for myself/ or my partner 8% I have previously used aged care packages such as domestic assistance 2% I currently use community aged care packages such as domestic assistance 2% None of the above applies to me 88% Note: Respondents were not asked to provide the name of the aged care operator from whom they accessed the care packages. Those who are currently using or have previously used community care packages are not necessarily using packages from UnitingCare Ageing. Source: Segment Needs - Please select one of the responses that currently applies to you N=214 34

35 LGBTI Communities - Needs & Gaps Those currently using aged care packages: n=4 2 out of 4 respondents currently using aged care packages strongly disagreed with the statement - Generally, aged care staff understand my needs. 2 out of 4 respondents currently using aged care packages disagreed with the statement - I am presently satisfied with the services I receive. Those who previously used age care packages n=5 2 out of 5 respondents agreed to the statement - I discontinued the use of aged care package because my care needs were not met appropriately. Source: Segment Needs Please rate your level of agreement on the given statements. Base varies 35

36 What did the respondents say Are their aged care needs met? I am under 45 and have not experienced this for myself, but working in the industry I can see there is a great silence around the issue of sexual orientation and I believe most prefer to ignore the issue a bisexual person No, I am frightened to tell anyone about being a transgender women. I work in aged care and there is no training provided to staff in regards to GLBTI. The needs of the gay community are different to standard aged care and there needs to be an understanding and specific education provided a lesbian woman No - if I needed to access residential care I feel that it would not suit me at all, both intellectually and as a lesbian woman Currently, very little has been done by service providers, and only now is becoming a matter for attention. I applaud all the services looking into the need and will continue to support them and the current government initiatives a gay man Source: Segment Needs - Do you feel that as a lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex individual your aged care needs are met? N=214, open end responses 36

When the respondents were asked if they would look for a specific LGBTI service if such a need arises 58% of the participants advocated it. o They said Yes, Absolutely, Definitely! 42% said no, specific services are not necessarily required. o They preferred to have a service which is LGBTI friendly, inclusive of all the communities, and made them feel included and respected. Yes No - not necessarily 42% 58% Source: If you were to look for an aged care service, for example residential aged care (nursing home) would you prefer a specific LGBTI service? N=214, open end responses 39

40 Words of respondents.. who prefer LGBTI specific service Definitely yes. In an acute care hospital I recall one Most definitely especially when one gets older and nurse was very rude to me as soon as she knew my more frail having the LGBTI community around you partner (of 17 years) was a woman. a lesbian woman during those years would make life easier and still have a social network. a gay man I know that elderly LGBTI would probably not be understood in aged care, I'm Jewish and I know that my Jewish community's care facilities would not cope with my perspectives of the world, sexuality and personal politics. I can only image how hard it must be for the rest of my Lesbian sisters. Its something we've all talked about as a significant issue. I would like specific Lesbian & Queer services. I have problems with non-feminist others i.e. misogynist Gays. a lesbian woman If I was to go into care now, I would probably look for somewhere specific or a NH that is sympathetic to LGBTI. a lesbian woman Yes only because I fear more discrimination - especially from a CHURCH organisation. a gay man Definitely. It is very difficult to explain your circumstances to service providers in rural areas. a gay man The respondents felt that they need specific LGBTI service to overcome discrimination and build their social network. Source: If you were to look for an aged care service, for example residential aged care (nursing home) would you prefer a specific LGBTI service? N=214, open end responses 40

41 Words of respondents.. who prefer LGBTI inclusive service Consistent with my life I am surrounded by both LGBTI and heterosexual friends and family. I would hope that, in time, residential aged care will be able to accommodate and celebrate diversity, as opposed to having a dedicated GLBTI residential aged care facility. If it was discovered that it was too difficult to accommodate diversity in residential aged care I would prefer to be accommodated in a specific LGBTI service rather than returning to the closet to fit facilities that only had programs for heterosexual clients. an intersex person Not particularly, but one that has integrated LGBTI diversity into the culture of the establishment. a gay man Not necessarily - but it must be a place where LGBTI issues are celebrated and incorporated into all aspects of the service. a lesbian woman Not especially as long as the facility catered to a diverse group of people with respect and dignity. - a gay man Not necessarily. But I would need to know that staff were trained to provide quality care specific to my needs with understanding and dignity. Also if I have to interact with other clients or residents, that staff support an accepting approach to diversity and address any discriminatory behaviours and comments made by others. a lesbian woman Other respondents felt that they need services which is integrated to the larger community such that diversity is celebrated. They also say that staff must be trained to have an inclusive approach to the needs of LGBTI people. 41

42 12. Key Points Identified 42

43 Key points from Survey Fear of disclosure of sexuality or identification of gender exists among individuals There exists gaps in the aged care services for LGBTI communities discrimination, particularly from church based organisation. The communities want to be respected and included. It is important for aged care operators to educate and train staff to provide services to the LGBTI communities. The findings indicate the importance of sending the message of inclusion and LGBTI friendly environments by health / aged care providers. Importance of aged care providers partnering with LGBTI organisations, communities and individuals. 43
