Aging with Pride: IDEA is the first federally-funded project testing an exercise and problem-solving program designed to improve quality of life for older LGBTQ people who experience memory loss or who help those experiencing memory loss.
Older adults with memory loss can participate with an informal care partner, who may be a spouse or partner, friend, family member, or anyone who assists them. Either the person with memory loss or the person who helps them (or both) must be LGBTQ. Participants meet with a coach at home to learn exercises and strategies related to memory loss. The program includes nine, in-person sessions with the coach over six weeks, with follow-up phone calls. Participants are compensated for their time.
