LGBT older people often experience negative reactions in care and needs are often overlooked. As a result in some cases, they feel forced to hide their sexual identity and are forced back into the closet. It is important that future health and social care staff recognise the importance of sexual identity and orientation in their assessment 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.
