LGBTQ2S+ Study at Brock University

Research: Including and Supporting LGBTQ2+ Persons with Dementia and Caregivers

Recruitment is currently ongoing for research at Brock University, that aims to better understand the care needs of LGBTQ2+ individuals living with dementia or cognitive impairments , and to explore the extent these needs are being met by dementia services in Canada. 

We are looking to conduct 1 hour interviews over the phone or on Zoom, with:

-LGBTQ2+ persons living with dementia or cognitive impairment , 

-LGBTQ2+ persons providing care to someone with dementia or cognitive impairment or;              

-Caregivers to LGBTQ2+ persons with dementia or cognitive impairments. 

The interview will include questions about your use of dementia services as it relates to your LGBTQ2+ identity and how services can be improved to better meet the needs of those in the LGBTQ2S+ community.
