LGB advice

Lesbian, gay and bisexual (LGB) people with dementia, and their carers, partners, friends and relatives, face many challenges - not only the challenges that people who are not in same sex relationships experience, but possibly many more.

For example, older LGB people may feel out of place in traditional support groups. They may be anxious about accessing services due to fears of homophobia or of not having their specific needs met.
