    ALZ Sucks®: Providing Support for LGBTQ+ People with Alzheimer’s Disease and their Families

    LGBTQ+ older adults who develop symptoms of Alzheimer’s are frequently mis-diagnosed due to prejudices and face unique barriers when accessing health and long-term care. In partnership with SAGE, Alzheimer’s Los Angeles (AlzLA) will produce five educational videos and a facilitator guide, profiling LGBTQ+ adults with dementia and their family caregivers. Using social media and face-to-face sessions, the videos will reach an under-served and stigmatized population with information to improve their access to quality dementia healthcare.
