Learning the Art of Responding, Not Reacting when Issues of Sexuality and Intimacy Arise

Sexuality and Intimacy Issues and Dementia in Group, Public, or Socially Awkward Situations: Learning the Art of Responding, Not Reacting

As a health care team, we should be comfortable addressing individual sexual and intimacy needs and preferences as part of a care plan. Unfortunately, we are much more likely to be uncomfortable and not address issues until challenges or problems arise. This session will open the door to discussions of intimacy and sexuality in dementia and provide us with beginning language and structure to initiate conversations when touching, hugging, and intimate contact happens.
