Sexuality - Older Adults

As with any individual, regardless of age, sexual preferences or lifestyle, regular medical care and checkups are important in maintaining a healthy sexuality. If you are sexually active, you should be educated on the health myths and facts associated, and consider protection from sexually transmitted diseases (STD’s). Older adults may face certain challenges when it comes to enjoying a healthy sex life due to age. Aging can bring with it normal physical changes, which may affect the ability to have and enjoy sex. As well, certain illnesses, medications, and surgeries can all affect one’s sexuality. The good news is, yearly screening and testing, checkups and treatments are all available via medical professionals and sexual health services throughout your community. If you, or a friend or loved one are looking for sexual health information, clinics, support or resources pertaining to sexuality and older adults, we have what you are looking for.
