Dementia and Sexuality: The rose that never wilts
Elaine White: Foreword by Professor Mary Marshall
Dementia and Sexuality offers understanding and a positive attitude to care staff and relatives about the sometimes challenging sexual behaviour of people living with dementia. It describes the possible causes and shows that armed with this knowledge, a satisfactory outcome for all can often be achieved.
The author, Elaine White, has been consulted about sexual behaviour for many years, and is therefore able to include for the benefit of readers many true stories from her work.
Dementia and Sexuality makes the powerful point that how each of us perceives and responds to challenging sexual behaviours is very important. It asks readers to think deeply about their own attitudes as well as the behaviour of people with dementia.
