Sexuality and People Living with Dementia
Anne Ellett, MSN, NP, will discuss the basic sexual needs of people living with dementia and examine the importance of recognizing that the onset of dementia does not have to signal the end of a healthy sex life.
This webinar is intended to help nursing home and memory care staff understand how to support PLWD in expressing their sexuality in the following ways:
1. Implement ways to express such feelings in dignified surroundings.
2. Identify strategies to assess that PLWD are capable of sexual expressions in a consensual relationship.
3. Explain that PLWD have normal adult feelings for intimacy and closeness with a partner.
This webinar has been approved by the Maryland Nurses Association for one (1) contact hour.
