Intimacy & Sexuality


Everyone, including people living with dementia, have needs and wishes for friendship, belonging, companionship, physical intimacy, and expression of sexuality. When one of a couple is diagnosed with dementia, it can be hard for the partner to know what to do, and how to act. It is important to remember that couples have a long history and strong emotional bonds, and this plays a role in how they act and react to a partner who now has dementia.
