"When you discuss with clients, give them subtle messages to show that you are open to people of any sexual orientation or transgender identity. For example you can do this by saying that you are a service provider which values diversity and is very inclusive towards your clients, no matter their gender identity, sexual orientation, race, disability or creed."

A practical guide out of the U.K. for health care providers working with dementia patients to become aware of clients' sexual orientation or transgender identity and how to address the specific needs of these clients.
