Does anyone here know about the Fountaingrove project? LGBT retirement community w/ continuing care

n the hills of Santa Rosa's Fountaingrove neighborhood, the public this weekend can get an early glimpse at the nation's first gay and lesbian retirement community with continuing care.

Most of the Fountaingrove Lodge project won't be built for 18 months. But on Saturday and Sunday, visitors can look through a completed model unit or take a tour of the oak-covered slope where the main, three-story building will feature a day spa, movie theater and wine cellar.

The nation has relatively few facilities specifically for seniors in the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered community.

What makes Fountaingrove different is that it will be the first such facility in the U.S. that also is licensed as a continuing care retirement community. As such, it will have a care center for residents suffering Alzheimer's or dementia.

This project is just too cool. Our county is second only to San Francisco County in terms of percentage of population who belong in the LGBT community.

Full disclosure - I am so hopelessly straight that this is the first time I have ever typed 'LGBT' and I had to look at it twice in order to get it right. That being said, I am going to contact them about providing local entertainment.

1. Thank you for posting this.

This only in recent times starting to be addressed. It's hard enough going into your golden age, it seems doubly hard for LGBT (if you do not have a significant other).

P.S. Being "straight" is not a problem here (many heterosexuals are friendely for the equality & needs of the LGBT community).

So many of our elders find they are forced back into the closet as they age.
