The book contains alternately heartwarming and heartbreaking stories compiled which demonstrate on the one hand the capability of elderly people to experience enjoyable, exhilarating, romantic and gratifying sexual activity, intimacy and love. On the other, it portrays the grief for the tragic loss of a loved spouse or partner, the bitter separation of lifetime partners, the loneliness of the surviving spouse, the exasperation of devoted caregivers, the lack of sex policies in nursing homes and the loss of privacy and confidentiality of the elderly and Alzheimer’s sufferers. The behind the scene stories depict the desires, failures, fragilities, grief, loneliness, depression, diet, exercise, driving, addictions to gambling and drugs that make the elderly and those suffering from Alzheimer’s the people they are.
