Sexuality and Intimacy for Family and Friend Care Partners (Recorded Webinar)
This recorded webinar focuses on the impact of dementia on sexuality and intimacy. Since dementia results in a wide variety of brain changes, the ability to be intimate with others and expressions of sexuality are typically impacted at multiple points throughout progression. Unfortunately, these brain changes can lead to actions that are viewed by some as ‘inappropriate sexual advances.’ In this webinar, explore the changes that relate to social behaviors, disinhibition, sensory processing, and cognitive abilities to help understand how and why intimacy and sexuality are affected. Also, learn a more helpful and healthy approach to coping with situations involving sexuality or intimacy when someone is living with dementia.
By the end of this webinar, you will be able to:
- Describe typical brain changes in the progression of dementia
- Discuss ways in which these brain changes may impact sexuality and intimacy
- Identify healthy approaches to situations involving sexuality or intimacy in dementia care
