Sexuality in older people is affected by various factors including, sexual physiology in old age, physical illness, medication and mental illness; therefore, a thorough sexual history should form part of a comprehensive psychiatric assessment. Also, several sexual problems arise in people suffering from dementia, which range from decreased sexual activity to inappropriate sexual behaviours. Management of inappropriate sexual behaviours include psychological and pharmacological interventions.
