For LGBTQ people living with or affected by dementia or concerned about memory loss
We provide a supportive and friendly dementia café for people concerned about their memory loss or dementia. Friends, loved ones and carers are welcome too.
Many LGBTQ people face a number of additional challenges when it comes to bereavement, in addition to universal experiences of grief, pain and sadness. This can include LGBTQ discrimination, a failure to acknowledge our relationships, estrangement from our families, legal and financial issues, and exclusion from discussions and decisions made by family members and health care professionals.
