Abstract

Date Presented 4/20/2018

Sexual activity is an activity of daily living that can influence social participation and well-being. Physical, psychological, and cognitive changes from stroke can affect couples’ intimacy and sexual interactions. For this study, we interviewed spouses about their needs, experiences, and perspectives regarding intimacy and sexuality.
