Sexuality and dementia

Overview

Our sexuality, and how we choose to express it, tends to be something we keep private. Discussing our needs, desires and feelings can be hard even between partners in longstanding relationships, never mind with health or social care professionals or friends and relatives.

We've put together an information sheet for people with dementia, their carers and their families. It looks at sexuality and intimacy when someone with dementia is living at home.

Check out our information sheet below. To talk to someone about dementia, call our 24 Hour Dementia Helpline.
