The LGBTTQI Home Care Access Project is seeking 30 more LGBTTQI people from across Ontario to complete a web-based survey

Monday, April 29 2013

A significant number of LGBTTQI people are receiving health care in their home provided by personal support workers, nurses, occupational therapists, physiotherapists, social workers, etc. However, we don't know much about their experiences, such as, do they feel comfortable enough to disclose their sexual orientation and/or their gender identity to their home care service providers, and if so, has disclosure impacted the quality of services received?

Andrea Daley and Judy MacDonnell at York University in Toronto have partnered with RHO and the Toronto Central Community Care Access Centre to explore LGBTTQI people's experiences of using home care services across Ontario. The research team also includes academic partners from McMaster, McGill, and California State Universities. In addition, they are working with two community-based advisory committees.

Through an anonymous web-based survey they are exploring the experiences of LGBTTQI people who are 18 years or older, live in Ontario, and have used or are using home care services, through formal and/or informal means of support.
