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.
If you are interested in participating in an interview please contact Emma Whitehouse at email@example.com and for additional information about this project, please contact the Primary Investigator of this research, Dr. Arne Stinchcombe at firstname.lastname@example.org . This project is funded by the Alzheimer Society of Canada and has been reviewed and received clearance through the Brock University Research Ethics Board. (REB#19-367).
