LGBT Health and Wellbeing has developed this toolkit to support health and social care staff to reflect on and develop their practice in working with lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people with dementia.
In many health and care settings, LGBT people’s identities are often hidden, and this is perhaps even
more likely in dementia care, where people may become less able to communicate what is important to them. This resource will help you consider why LGBT people may not be visible, the potential consequences for LGBT people you support, and ways to develop inclusive practice.
It considers the specific experiences that LGBT people affected by dementia may have and how best practice can be developed.
