This LGBT+ History Month we are highlighting services that support LGBT+ people living with dementia. Living with dementia as an LGBT+ person may bring particular challenges for both the person with the diagnosis and their loved ones.
The below services offer support to the LGBT+ community and to anyone caring for an LGBT+ person with dementia.
Opening Doors is a charity that supports LGBT+ people aged 50+ across the UK. They run a series of online support groups for LGBT+ people living with dementia; or looking after someone with dementia.
Switchboard are based in Brighton and offer one-to-one support, in person, by phone, or online. They also offer training, advice, and information on LGBT+ dementia for individuals, care givers, and organisations.
