    Aging with Dignity: 2SLGBTQI+ Seniors in British Columbia
    (Dignity Seniors Society, 2023-03) heinz, matthew; Beringer, Robert
    Dignity Seniors Society of Vancouver (DSS) is a 10-year-old non-profit organization dedicated to providing tailored information and programming for 2SLGBTQI+ seniors and seniors’ service providers in British Columbia, with a focus on health, housing, community building and end-of-life planning/finances. In 2022, DSS sponsored a needs assessment to document current needs of 2SLGBTQI+ seniors in British Columbia. Individuals who were 55 years or older, lived in British Columbia, and identified as part of the 2SLGBTQI+ communities were invited to participate in interviews or an online survey.
