Take The Commitment to Caring Pledge

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

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