RESIDENTS’ RIGHTS GUIDE
Know your Rights and Protections as a Nursing Home Resident. As a resident at a nursing home, you have rights and protections under Federal and state law that help ensure you get the care and services you need. For example, the nursing home must tell you about these rights and explain them in writing in a language you understand. They must also explain in writing how you should act and what you’re responsible for while you’re in the nursing home. You must acknowledge in writing that you got this information.

RAINBOW RESOURCE GUIDE
The Rainbow Resource Guide is a community resource developed by SAGE Metro Detroit, now MiGen, for older LGBTQ+ adults.
Many obstacles remain for LGBTQ older adults. Our laws fail to provide clear coverage; funding often eludes our communities and fighting discrimination is an ongoing battle. Too often, the community resources and policy makers we turn to for help lack understanding and training. This Rainbow Resource Guide serves to provide a tool to promote awareness, share information and deter discrimination.
Caregiving and LGBTQ+ Concerns in Michigan: A Guide for Caregivers. If you are caring for an LGBTQ+ older adult, it’s important to understand some of the
unique circumstances individuals face and/or may be concerned about in their care. This guide will provide you with legal, financial, and healthcare info you need to know, including a caregiver checklist and resource guide.
