Diagnosis Dementia Checklist

LGBTQ+ Resources

Around 3 million LGBTQ+ adults are over age 50, and those that receive a dementia diagnosis face a particularly challenging set of circumstances. Many, including care partners, face disproportionately high levels of social isolation and stigmatization as they age, making it difficult to find support. We have compiled a list of resources and safe supports, both national and local to the DC Metro Area & Virginia.

General Resources - National

"I like that IMCC focuses on dementia-related problems and provides a focal point for families to network and socially interact in coping with dementia. It provides a community that helps us in our struggle."
