Webinar: Dementia and the LGBT Community (for PLwD)

COST:  FREE! / START TIME:  2:00p EDT

This program was designed for people who have received a diagnosis of dementia.  Teepa has created a forum for you to share your thoughts, questions and concerns.  We want to know what's important to you so that we can share out with care partners.  Please join us!

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.

Objectives:

  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.

"No decision about me, without me."

We've heard many people living with dementia share their thoughts along the journey. In response to their request, Positive Approach now offers live webinar events for people living with dementia.  Each interactive event will focus on a specific topic and include open discussions with the group. 

Each session is being offered for FREE to those living with dementia.  Participants must register to attend.  Registration is limited.  Registration for the live events includes access to the recording of the webinar. Recordings will be released within a week of the live event. 

REGISTRATION FOR EACH EVENT WILL CLOSE 24 TO 48 HOURS BEFORE THE EVENT.

If you have questions or if you don’t see the topic you want to discuss and explore, please contact Corrie Phillips.
