Aging with Pride

Southern Arizona Senior Pride celebrating, supporting and uniting LGBTQI+ older adults (520) 312-8923; There are many events each month, so check out our website: On-going events: Advance registration required to attend: In the several years we have been doing our workshops and coaching sessions we realized that there is a greater need for information and resources than we expected. In response, we have started Senior Pride offers monthly workshops and individual coaching to individuals to prepare their advanced medical care planning documents, answer questions, and receive referrals for resources to help us maintain that control. We all live busy lives. Regardless of our age we often do not have time to find out necessary information for the future. As we get older, we have more and more questions about what the future holds in store concerning things like medical care, finances, family relationships, housing, and our ability to retain control of our lives for as long as possible.
