Understanding Older Age Sexuality

Susan Gledhill

The ageing population and spiralling health care costs have helped create an increased focus on healthy ageing and wellness. This focus arises when myths about older age sexuality persist reinforcing social stereotyping depicting the older person as an asexual being. The researcher’s clinical experience has established that some older people are willing to discuss their sexuality but barriers exist in communicating experiences and concerns to health professionals.
