Quality Dementia Care 6
Dementia and sexuality - an important topic for all carers of a person with dementia.
Dementia and sexuality is the next important topic for the new Quality Dementia Care Series Book 6, Understanding dementia care and sexuality in residential facilities. Dementia and sexuality can cause embarrassment and upset to people with dementia, their families and carers and care staff. The reality is that issues relating to sexuality are confronting even though sexual expression is part of every human being. A person with dementia is no less a person because of a diagnosis of dementia and will have a need for sexual expression in some form.
The challenge is to reconcile differing values, feelings and morals of those people involved in a way that balances the human rights of the person with dementia and duty of care whether in the community or residential care.
The booklet was launched on Monday 8 November by author Adjunct Associate Professor Sally Garratt in Hobart. The launch also marked the first seminar of the Australian seminar series that visted every state and territory.
