The LGBTQ community can face particular challenges related to Alzheimer’s and dementia, including finding inclusive and welcoming health care providers, less ability to call upon adult children for assistance, concerns about stigma and higher rates of poverty and social isolation.
This virtual discussion will focus on the latest updates to resources for the LGBTQ communities in North Carolina. We will hear from representatives of the Alzheimer’s Association’s Diversity, Equity & Inclusion team, local organizations from across the state, and faith leaders to discuss their outreach, impact and challenges during the past year. We’ll also provide information on future plans to increase access to resources on a local level.
