Dementia Friendly Fairfax
Supporting LGBTQ+ Older Adults with Dementia & Care Partners
June 24, 2022
LGBTQ+ older adults have seen monumental change in their lifetimes, having come of age at time of great prejudice, discrimination, and violence against them. These consequences of the past can have an profound impact on health and wellness still today. How can we break this cycle and impact change in our community?
Join this virtual event to learn more about supporting the unique needs of LGBTQ+ older adults, including intentional language and communication, the importance of proactive planning, and assembling a safe and inclusive team of care.
