The Dementia UK guide signposts readers to a selection of services that maybe be of use to someone living with dementia as an LGBTQ+ person, and that could provide support in the particular challenges faced by both the person with the diagnosis and their loved ones.
The services included in the guide offer support to the LGBTQ+ community and to anyone caring for an LGBTQ+ person with dementia. To learn about all of the highlighted services visit Dementia UK.
Here’s a sample of what’s available:
Opening Doors is a charity that supports LGBTQ+ people aged 50+ across the UK. They run a series of online support groups for LGBTQ+ people living with dementia; or looking after someone with dementia.
DEEP is a network of peer support groups around the UK that provide opportunities for people living with dementia to support each other. They run an online LGBTQ+ group called Speak out with dementia.
