Posted 10 June 2021

In 2017, Housing 21 launched itself as a dementia-friendly organisation; in 2020, we released our Dementia Action plan; and now, as we celebrate Pride month, we are offering sessions discussing the challenges faced by the LGBT+ community when they are impacted by dementia.

As a dementia-friendly organisation, Housing 21 are always looking for ways to raise awareness of the challenges faced by people who are living with dementia, as well as helping staff keep up to date with the best ways of supporting our residents and their families.

Coinciding with Pride Month, our staff have been invited to attend Bring Dementia Out, an hour-long webinar designed and delivered by the LGBT Foundation and delivered by the Guinness Partnership, looking at the challenges faced by LGBT+ people living with dementia, best practice ideas for supporting those people and raising awareness of LGBT+ identities, inclusive language and monitoring sexual orientation, gender identity and trans status.

The training has been made available to all staff, and is just a small part of the ongoing work we undertake as an LGBT+ ally and a dementia-friendly organisation.‚Äč
