Positive Approach® to Care 

Dementia and the LGBT Community (for Professional Care Partners) 

What is the impact of being a member of the LGBT community and having dementia? What about being a member of the LGBT community and providing support and service to people with dementia who are not in that community? What happens if advance planning is not undertaken before competence is questioned? This session will begin the conversation on these topics.


  1. Review common concerns and issues related to living with dementia and being a member of the LGBT community throughout the progression of the condition
  2. Discuss selected issues that can arise when someone from the LGBT community is providing support or assistance to non-members of that community
  3. Compare inadequate and proficient advance planning when living with dementia and having multiple stakeholders potentially involved.
