Recent policy in Britain has promoted the recognition of diversity of experience in later life. However, despite this, sexuality in later life is a little understood area and one that health and social care practitioners often overlook in their dealings with older service users. Co-written by a researcher, project worker and older volunteers, this book provides an accessible guide for those practitioners who work with older people to develop a deeper understanding of issues of discrimination and oppression attached to sexuality in later life, and the implications for practice.
