Alzheimer’s Disease & Sexuality

How Does Alzheimer’s Affect Sexuality?

Alzheimer’s disease is often associated with memory loss and impaired thinking, with less attention paid to the sexual behavior of patients. However, the reality is that Alzheimer’s disease may cause inappropriate changes in sexual behavior of the affected person, ranging from loss of intimacy to overly sexual behavior, which have the potential to affect the most intimate of relationships.  Spouses and partners find such changes quite challenging. They must understand that such behavior is not an intentional choice of their partner; rather, the result of the disease. As a result, they should be willing to adjust their attitudes and actions to ensure their partner feels comfortable and they are able to maintain a sense of intimacy.
