SEXUALITY & DEMENTIA

Tuesday, Oct 7,2014 -

Time: 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Sexuality is an integral part of personhood throughout life and continues to be important to individuals living with dementia as well. Sexuality is not just the physical act of sexual union, but rather includes several components, all of which must be appreciated in supporting individuals living with dementias.The sexual needs of individuals living with dementia are often misunderstood, stereotyped and denied. The topic of sexuality and dementia is often omitted from conversation all together or until “problem behavior” occurs whether the person is at home or in long term living settings.

Guest speaker, Vicki Schmall, Ph.D., Gerontology Specialist, will review the components of sexuality and discuss myths and other barriers that can prevent care partners from both understanding  sexuality and sexual behaviors, as well as responding in a supportive manner.

SEXUALITY & DEMENTIA

Tuesday, Oct 7,2014 -

Time: 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Sexuality is an integral part of personhood throughout life and continues to be important to individuals living with dementia as well. Sexuality is not just the physical act of sexual union, but rather includes several components, all of which must be appreciated in supporting individuals living with dementias.The sexual needs of individuals living with dementia are often misunderstood, stereotyped and denied. The topic of sexuality and dementia is often omitted from conversation all together or until “problem behavior” occurs whether the person is at home or in long term living settings.

Guest speaker, Vicki Schmall, Ph.D., Gerontology Specialist, will review the components of sexuality and discuss myths and other barriers that can prevent care partners from both understanding  sexuality and sexual behaviors, as well as responding in a supportive manner.

SEXUALITY & DEMENTIA

Tuesday, Oct 7,2014 -

Time: 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Sexuality is an integral part of personhood throughout life and continues to be important to individuals living with dementia as well. Sexuality is not just the physical act of sexual union, but rather includes several components, all of which must be appreciated in supporting individuals living with dementias. The sexual needs of individuals living with dementia are often misunderstood, stereotyped and denied. The topic of sexuality and dementia is often omitted from conversation all together or until “problem behavior” occurs whether the person is at home or in long term living settings.

Guest speaker, Vicki Schmall, Ph.D., Gerontology Specialist, will review the components of sexuality and discuss myths and other barriers that can prevent care partners from both understanding  sexuality and sexual behaviors, as well as responding in a supportive manner.
