dc.description.abstractLesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer (LGBTQ+) people living with dementia are an under-served population. They are often at greater risk of vulnerability, discrimination, loneliness, health inequalities and poorer health outcomes. This overview offers an introductory summary of some of the challenges and considerations facing LGBTQ+ people living with dementia. Particular themes include living with memory problems, remembering the past, reminiscence, personal relationships and receiving care. The overview also provides a summary of recommendations for improving the experiences and care of LGBTQ+ people living with dementia, which include comprehensive training for health and care professionals, as well as strengthened peer support networks. Areas for future research to fully understand the needs of this under-served population are also suggested.en
