Diversifying Dementia Services
The aim of this research was to develop recommendations and identify what the future care needs of older LGTBQI+ people living in Ireland were. It had a strong focus on PPI and stakeholder involvement throughout. The results will help dementia services better support the LGTBQI+ community living with dementia.
