The Space Between: Understanding the experiences of non-binary individuals with dementia.
This research project is led by nonbinary people with dementia, with the support of research allies in the field of dementia studies. Its objective is to explore the experiences of non-binary individuals with dementia and to identify the unique challenges they may face related to their gender identity.
This project uses a qualitative approach to data collection and analysis, with semi-structured interviews. Participants are recruited through community organisations that support non-binary individuals, as well as through dementia support groups and healthcare providers.
The findings will be used to inform the development of more inclusive and culturally competent dementia care practices that take into account the diverse experiences of individuals with dementia.
