Topic and Guests for April 20, 2014 Show

We interviewed Kathy Bates, a Mental Health Therapist with over 35 years of experience working with the senior population currently with Foss Home and Village in North Seattle.  We discussed sex and sexuality amongst the elderly in our community.  The importance of looking for and addressing inappropriate behaviors such as disrobing in public but respecting individual choice and encouraging relationships at all ages.

 Contact Information: If you are interested in learning more addressing inappropriate behavior around sexuality amongst people with dementia and memory loss Kathy recommends contacting social workers at Senior Centers in your community, the Alzheimer’s Association and the support groups they run http://www.alz.org/, and the National Center on Caregiving and their number is 1-800-445-8106.
