Reports from the CDC have highlighted a concerning uptick in cases of chlamydia, gonorrhea, and syphilis among individuals aged 65 and older. Surprisingly, these numbers have nearly doubled in the past decade. This increase may stem from a combination of seniors underestimating their susceptibility to STDs and healthcare providers hesitating to broach sexual health with this demographic.
It’s crucial for older adults, especially women, to prioritize understanding sexual health, particularly regarding STDs, to ensure a secure and gratifying intimate life.
To address this pressing need, AssistedLiving.org has crafted a comprehensive, compassionate, and easy-to-navigate guide tailored specifically to empower senior women in maintaining both health and an active sex life. This resource dives into crucial topics, including the unique dynamics of sexual activity in older age, comprehensive sex education, and practical approaches for preventing STDs. Additionally, the guide sheds light on the sensitive issue of sexual abuse within retirement communities.
