The forgotten: dementia and the aging LGBT community.

McGovern, Justine.
J Gerontol Soc Work; 57(8): 845-57, 2014.

Resumo: Although research documenting the experience of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgendered (LGBT) aging in general is gaining traction, and literature on dementia continues to proliferate, few articles attend to how dementia affects members of the aging LGBT community. This article reviews the current state of knowledge on the experience of dementia for LGBT older adults, and suggests areas for further research. In addition, it aims to promote social work's engagement with related disciplines and global dementia care. The article's ultimate goal is to encourage development of care practices tailored to the experiences, expectations and needs of older LGBT individuals affected by dementia.
