Understanding Intimacy and Dementia Zoom Training

12:00 PM - 2 PM 

It is important to understand that older adults continue to be sexual beings with the need for love and affection.  When mind and behavior are altered by dementia, and normal abilities decline, sexual desire, the need for intimacy, and the need for companionship may exist well after the loss of normal abilities. This presentation will also focus on both the reasons and possible triggers for “sexually inappropriate behaviors” in persons with dementia and on effective caregiver interventions.
