One of the major changes that Alzheimer's disease brings to a spousal relationship is how it affects intimacy and sexuality. Through candid interviews with spouse caregivers and where possible, the spouse who has Alzheimer's, this video explores issues such as:
• Blurring of roles between caregiver and intimate partner as the need for caregiving increases
• Changes in behavior that affect intimacy between the partners
• Changes in sexual attraction between the partners
Opens up sensitive and sometimes taboo issues surrounding intimacy, sexuality, and Alzheimer's disease so that those couples and individuals dealing with these issues can feel more free to talk about them in support groups or with professionals.
