    Documentary highlights plight of LGBT+ people as they get older

    24.04.19 LGBT+ people are hiding their sexual or gender identity in care homes because they are afraid of bullying and discrimination. It is the basis of a new documentary film by Glenda Rome, “Return to the Closet?”, which is being premiered in Glasgow on 1 May, as part of the Luminate festival for older citizens. The film-maker told the Scotsman newspaper that extensive interviews for the film uncovered examples of older people in care homes “de-gaying” because they feared revealing their true identities and many care homes reported that they had no LGBT+ residents. “The idea of older people feeling they have to ‘go back into the closet’ is terrible,” Rome is quoted as saying. “It’s something people are just starting to think about now and the last thing we need is for the progress that has been made, which was hard-won for a generation who lived through the criminalisation of their sexuality, to be undermined.”

    Take part in 'world's largest survey' on dementia

    23.04.19 Alzheimer’s Disease International (ADI) has asked the LSE to carry out what is billed as the “world’s largest survey” of people’s attitudes to dementia, with the results due in time to be published in the World Alzheimer Report later this year. ADI says the survey, which will be worldwide and is available in multiple languages, takes about 10 minutes to complete. It is aimed at four groups: health and care professionals, people living with dementia, carers of people with dementia, and the general public. The survey, which will be live on ADI’s website until 15 June, is intended to inform improvement of services. Dr Sara Evans-Lacko from the LSE said: “[Dementia] is a global issue with considerable public health significance...With this survey we are seeking to establish an understanding of current attitudes about dementia and gather data on first hand experiences of people living with dementia and their carers around the world."
