Female sexuality under stress - the effect of chronic illness, disease, disability and in the nursing home

Dr Lesley A Yee

The older woman will face the impact of ageing in physical ways that influence her sexuality. The onset in later years of significant illnesses and their treatments will affect the way she is able to physically engage in sexual activity and her ability to maintain physical comfort in sexual activity. This in turn reflects on the psychological aspects of her continuing sensuality and sexuality. The resultant disabilities will often involve care from others, both at home and in institutions. It is a challenge to maintain an active sexual life for women in these situations .
