Over the rainbow - LGBT people and dementia

Care home staff need greater training to deal with residents who are Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual or Transexual (LGBT) and living with dementia, a report claims.

The ‘Over the Rainbow’ report says those people are often living in “double isolation” and need better support to ensure their identities are not lost or over-looked.

The project was funded by DEEP in partnership with the University of Worcester Association for Dementia Studies, Birmingham LGBT Centre for Health and Wellbeing and PACE Health London.
