LGBTQ+ Support

Affirming and inclusive services for LGBTQ seniors

WestMass ElderCare’s LGBTQ+ support offers the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, questioning, intersex, and asexual (LGBTQ+) community and our allies opportunities to meet one another and grow in our identities.

  • Provide social connection through monthly events, including:
    • Group Meal at Holyoke Senior Center (1st Wednesday of the month at 4pm)
    • Coffee Hour at the Belchertown Senior Center (2nd Wednesday at 10am)


Who We Serve:

  • LGBTQ+ older adults
  • Younger partners
  • Allies
