BEING ME: care for LGBT-people

LGBT older people often experience negative reactions in care and their needs are often overlooked. In some cases they feel forced to hide their sexual identity and are pushed back into the closet. To raise awareness and acceptation of LGBT seniors in care it is important that our future health and social care staff recognizes the importance of sexual identity and orientation in their assessments and care practices. 

BEING ME provides educators in care and wellbeing with a set of learning resources to promote inclusive care for LGBT older people among their students.
