Pride Month

As we celebrate Pride from our homes this month, take a look at what LGBT Foundation – who we partner with on Bring Dementia Out – have been working on to make #DementiaSeenAndHeard

 

Hidden Figures report

Read about the impact of Covid-19 on LGBT+ people affected by dementia. Older LGBT+ people are more likely to have long term health conditions & experience disproportionately higher levels of isolation. More info here.

 

Webinar: Housing for LGBT+ people affected by dementia

Claire Days who runs Bring Dementia Out took part in a webinar on 8 June,  exploring issues with housing and care for LGBT+ older people with dementia. Contact j.barrett@worc.ac.uk for slides.
