Help Us Remain – Bring Care for Identity to Care for Dementia
The Canadian healthcare system isn’t equipped for 2SLGBTQI people living with dementia.
Egale Canada discussed the experiences of 2SLGBTQI people living with dementia and what we can do to make more inclusive dementia care for all. Participants will learn about Egale’s dementia-related research and resources as well as Egale’s awareness campaign – Help Us Remain: Bring Care for Identity to Care For Dementia.
