Diversifying Dementia Services

The aim of this research is to develop recommendations and identify what the future care needs of older LGTBQI+ people living in Ireland are. This project was identified as a need by members of The Dementia Research Advisory Team (PPI Group) and The Alzheimer Society of Ireland. It will have a strong focus on PPI and stakeholder involvement throughout. We will achieve this by working with older members of the LGBTQI+ community, those living with dementia, and their care partners. The results will allow for The Alzheimer Society of Ireland and other relevant services to learn more about supporting the LGTBQI+ community on their journey with dementia.
