The Long-Term Care Equality Index (LEI) is a program of SAGE and the Human Rights Campaign Foundation (HRCF). The goal of the LEI is to create a network of LTCCs across the country that are providing a welcoming home for older LGBT people.
As of the release of this initial report, there have been 78 “Commitment to Caring” pledges completed, which is the first step in the LEI and indicates long-term care communities’ intentions to adopt LGBTQ+ inclusive and culturally competent policies and practices. Additionally, there have been 49 self-assessments completed for 184 diverse long-term care communities, with 32 states represented.
