Sexuality and the Older Woman
Sexual health is a key public health issue. The older woman faces a number of changes to their sexual health, wellbeing and sexuality. These changes result in many older women having to adapt to a series of complex transitions that can be challenging. This article aims to identify and explore some of these changes and how they can have a significant impact on women’s quality of life. Nurses play an important role in assessing and helping women to manage normal and pathological age changes in order to improve the sexual health of older women and ensure they receive the advice and support needed at this stage of their life.
