JUNE FEATURED EDUCATION PROGRAMS
June 2, 5:00 p.m. Central Time
Join us for an enlightening discussion about Alzheimer's and dementia in the LGBTQ community. The panel will begin with Clint Kershaw, diagnosed with Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI) in 2017 at age 56. He and his partner, Jeff, will talk about how they met and fell in love after Clint's diagnosis and how they navigate this disease together. We will also be joined by Reynaldo Mireles from SAGE (Advocacy & Services for LGBTQ+ Elders) to talk about their work in communities, particularly communities of color. Finally Dan Stewart from HRC (Human Rights Campaign) will discuss the movement to be more trans-inclusive and how the Long-Term Care Equality Index is promoting equitable and inclusive care for LGBTQ older adults in senior housing.
The Alzheimer's Association will be hosting several Community Forums to give residents an opportunity to share their thoughts regarding how the Alzheimer's Association can assist families experiencing Alzheimer's. Learn more about a Community Forum near you.
