U of W offers memory loss programs for the LGBTQ community

Aging with Pride: IDEA (Innovations in Dementia Empowerment and Action) at the University of Washington is offering free programs for individuals with memory loss in the LGBTQ community.   Programs include nine sessions with a trained coach and focus on problem solving, skill building and low impact exercise. One program is for those with memory loss and their care partner. Either the person with memory loss or their care partner must be LGBTQ.  The other program is for those with memory loss who are LGBTQ and don’t have a care partner.  Programs are virtual, using easy video chatting.  Participants don’t have to leave home to participate and are paid $25 for each phone interview completed. These programs are offered in Oregon, Washington, and California.
