An exploration of the complex issues surrounding sexuality and dementia, including quality of life, capacity to consent, resident protections, and potential legal issues.

Sexuality, Intimacy, and Dementia in Residential Care Settings

Sexuality, Intimacy, and Dementia in Residential Care Settings provides a thoughtful, much needed exploration of sexuality, intimacy, and dementia, and the complex issues that impact residents, family members, and care staff.  Through five 15- to 20-minute chapters, the film looks at the relevant concerns of intimacy and sexuality on quality of life, freedom to express sexuality, capacity to consent, resident protections, and potential legal ramifications.  It also touches on the needs of LGBT residents, how to address resident-to-resident and resident-to-visitor encounters, and how to find workable solutions with the support of family members.

The five parts include:

  • The Effects of Dementia on Intimacy and Sexuality
  • Responding to Sexual Expressions
  • Consensual Intimacy and Sexuality
  • Spousal and Family Responses
  • Non-consensual Intimacy and Sexuality
