Age Concern Otago is pleased to provide you with information on sexual health and wellness of older people.
Sexuality doesn't stop with age. The older person is a sexual person, when one gets older the yearning for intimacy, security, and belonging becomes intensified. Some people struggle to acknowledge that older people are sexual beings with the same desires and rights as the rest of the population. This booklet while written for older people, can be a useful resource for family members and caregivers.
Some of the topics in this booklet may not directly affect you, but still be of interest. This booklet will not make you an expert, but it may be able to answer some questions that you have about this topic.
To create this booklet a range of useful websites and research articles were found. These are referenced at the back of the booklet.

We would like to acknowledge and thank Anika Paton and Kellie Hawkins, School of Occupational Therapy Year 3 Students for their professional approach and projectmanagement to help Age Concern Otago produce this valuable booklet on sexual health and wellness of older people in residential care.
