The package was created by the University of Auckland's School of Nursing in collaboration with a working group drawn from the aged care and gay sectors. It includes a short video, workbooks and guidelines on caring for lesbian, gay and bisexual residents of aged care facilities.

This picture of an ideal Lesbian Elders Village was drawn and made into a jigsaw by Aggie Jakubska who died in October 2012.  Appreciating how good it was to live in a community of lesbians, particularly in the last months of her life, she wanted to support LEV fund raising and attract donations.  Aggie thought that the jigsaws would make good Christmas or Solstice presents and put a last burst of energy into getting them completed before she died.  Jigsaws cost $20 within New Zealand, $25 rest of the world.
Read on to order a jigsaw.
