Older Adults

SPECTRUM Prime (50+)

Spectrum Prime is a discussion group for 2SLGBTQIA+ adults aged 50+.

We see things differently as we age. Priorities shift. Social circles change. Please join us for a social and discussion group for older 2SLGBTQIA+ identified adults. This group meets on the first and third Wednesdays of the month.

This best practice guideline (BPG) is a comprehensive document that provides guidance and resources for
evidence-based nursing practice. It is not intended to be a manual or “how-to” guide; rather, it is a tool to guide
best practices and enhance decision making for nurses, health-service organizations, care providers, and other community stakeholders.
