Lifeview celebrated International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia (IDAHOT) in each of its homes and corporate office yesterday to show their support for the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Intersex (LGBTI) community.
Lifeview residents and staff embraced the day by dressing in purple and rainbows and creating colourful artworks representing inclusiveness.
Staff and residents have also taken the step to sign individual pledges in support of the LGBTI community, and placed these around the homes and offices.
“This accreditation will assist us to better care for elders from all walks of life – it’s all about reducing barriers,” Ms Gall says.
Lifeview recently announced its intention to build a LGBTI aged care living and retirement home in Melbourne’s inner city suburb of Prahran.
The development has been described as the first inner city offering this type of facility in Melbourne by an approved aged care provider.
