Celebrate Trailblazers on National Honor Our LGBTQ Elder's Day

May 13, 2022 9:00:00 AM / by Pacifica Senior Living

At Pacifica Senior Living, our number one priority is making each resident feel comfortable, welcome, and loved. Today we celebrate National Honor Our LGBTQ Elder's Day, a day that celebrates the trailblazers, social activists, and brave individuals that fought for visibility, respect, and equality. Without the LGBTQ community elders, younger generations would not be able to experience the freedoms and rights they have today.


This holiday is a time to reflect on the positive changes that have been won when it comes to equality, and the forge ahead, continuing to seek equal rights and freedoms for all. Many older adults may have been part of these major times of change, and we want to thank them and celebrate the part they played in making our world a more loving, accepting place.

Equality, respect and dignity are at the heart of our values at Pacifica, both as a company and across our communities. We are always striving to make each resident feel welcome and understood, free to be themselves. Our staff and community members inspire our residents to explore their unique individuality and express their personalities freely, where they will be accepted with open arms for their authentic selves. Above all, we believe love is love, and we uplift our LGBTQ+ residents to create a safe, inspiring atmosphere free of discrimination.
