It is very common for a person with dementia to exhibit unexpected or inappropriate sexual behaviour and yet few resources exist to help partners, family members, caregivers, and others address it. Now for the first time, esteemed geriatric neuropsychiatrist Dr. Doug Wornell provides a compassionate and detailed understanding of the issue and strategies for how to cope. Tackling a difficult subject without shame or embarrassment, Sexuality and Dementia offers essential information and practical solutions so that people with dementia and their partners can have stronger and happier relationships. It provides: * An explanation of the physical basis of the connection between dementia and changes in sexual drive and behaviour, including the impact of anatomy, brain chemicals and hormones.** Information on the sexual effects of medications used in dementia treatment.** An understanding of how emotional connections can be distorted in dementia (for instance, love may become funny and sexual excitement may be accompanied by either sadness or anger). ** Practical advice for how to handle sexual behaviour like flirtation, masturbation, verbal abuse, grabbing, and exhibitionism.*
* Recommendations to minimise the legal risk and potential for injury, as well as the risk of abuse or becoming a victim of inappropriate sexual behaviour, in long-term Please click here to ask a question
