The last taboo: a guide to dementia, sexuality, intimacy and sexual behaviour in care homes

From the International Longevity Centre UK, this new guide, provides care home workers and managers with information and practical advice about the complex, controversial and sensitive issue of sexuality and intimacy in care homes. 

The guide not only provides essential information on this aspect of dementia
care but offers practical advice to support current work-based
practices. Set out in an accessible and easy-to-read format, this
guide includes case studies, questions, suggestions and a self assessment
quiz to promote easy learning. It also provides a possible pathway for care home managers to develop a guiding policy on sexual expression in dementia.
