For LGBTI people, the prospect of entering aged care can be quite frightening. Experiences they have lived through can make them feel cautious about sharing personal details that could help provide person centred care.
This video series features people sharing real stories about their lives and concerns about aged care. The series also explores the complexity of the needs of LGBTI people in the context of dementia, as well as the importance of respecting a person’s wishes during their end stage of life.
The Rainbow of Difference project is a partnership between Altura Learning, Uniting and the University of Technology Sydney and is funded by the Australian Government. Altura Learning is proud to have produced this video and supports the initiative by distributing to our members as a complementary course.
