The LGBTTQI Home Care Access Project is seeking 100 LGBTTQI people across Ontario to complete a web-based survey.
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?.
Through an anonymous web-based survey we have begun 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.
Interested participants can complete the survey online by typing in the following link:
Participation is confidential and anonymous.
We also offer paper copies of the survey, with pre-paid postage. To request paper copies of the survey, please contact us: firstname.lastname@example.org or 647-
