Based on true stories and actual experiences, “Sex, Intimacy, Love, and Romance in Elderly and Alzheimer’s Patients” (published by Archway Publishing) explores intimate relationships and experiences of elderly people, particularly those dealing with dementia.

This story follows Annie and Sherry, both in their 60s, who meet by chance through their parents at Lakewood Nursing Home in Wichita, Kansas and develop a close friendship. Together they share knowledge and experiences regarding the elderly and nursing home residents with dementia. They compile a series of fascinating stories about love, intimacy, romance and sexual activity among seniors and Alzheimer’s patients. Annie and Sherry have begun to deal with several serious problems and hurdles often faced by the elderly themselves, further complicating their consideration of aging.

Although sex among seniors is generally not discussed openly, elderly couples affected by dementia frequently maintain physical intimacy, love and romance. Dr. Sandy Sanbar and Judy Rector share an enlightening narrative of two women whose parents are experiencing dementia.
