SAGE, Alzheimer's Assoc publish LGBT and Dementia Issues Guide

posted Wed, Sep 19, 2018   by Issues Brief: LGBT and Dementia

LGBT older people who receive a dementia diagnosis face a particularly challenging set of circumstances, including health disparities such as diabetes and high blood pressure, which increase the risk of developing Alzheimer’s and other dementias, and disproportionately high levels of social isolation and stigmatization as they age, making it difficult to find support. This comprehensive new Issues Brief published by SAGE and the Alzheimer's Association offers background and recommendations.
