Sexuality and dementia
Information for people with dementia, their carers and their families. It looks at sexuality and intimacy when someone with dementia is living at home.
As dementia progresses needs change: existing relationships may have to adapt, new relationships may form, desires may fluctuate. What does not change is the right of every adult to be sexually alive should they wish to be so, regardless of age, ability or sexual preference. Sexuality is a basic need which people with dementia and their carers should be able to express without fear of disapproval.
