Take The Commitment to Caring Pledge

Interested in participating in the Long-Term Care Equality Index?

The Commitment to Caring Pledge is the first step to participating in the Long-Term Care Equality Index (LEI). The LEI is a biennial survey. The survey will be conducted in even years and the report published in the odd years. View the LEI 2023 Report at hrc.org/lei.

Leadership at eligible residential long-term care facilities and senior housing providers are invited to sign the pledge as an indication of their intention to adopt the LGBTQ+ inclusive policies and practices necessary to provide culturally competent and responsive care to LGBTQ+ older adults.

The 2023 LEI Survey Cycle is now closed. We encourage communities interested in growing their LGBTQ+ inclusion efforts to sign the commitment to caring pledge to receive access to webinars, technical assistance, a self-assessment, and resources. The next LEI Survey will open in 2024.
