LGBT Floridians facing Alzheimer’s
The Florida chapters of the Alzheimer’s Association and Lambda Living, a program from Jewish Community Services, have partnered to offer a new virtual support group for LGBT Floridians facing Alzheimer’s. Held every 3rd Tuesday of the month from 2 – 3:30 pm, the group will provide a space for both caregivers and those facing Alzheimer’s to connect. Cindy Brown, support group facilitator and Lambda Living program manager, has worked in the South Florida LGBT community for years. To her, this initiative fills a large gap in services. “This group is important for several reasons. Older LGBT folks have access to fewer services than their heterosexual counterparts. In addition, many older LGBT folks are not comfortable sharing personal information in a group that may have members who aren’t as supportive of them,” said Brown. For secure and confidential registration, call the Alzheimer’s Association 24/7 Helpline at 800-272-3900 or contact Cindy Brown at firstname.lastname@example.org or 304.403.6515.
