Our national team of advocates is available Monday to Friday 8am–8pm and Saturday 10am-4pm 

Webinar- Your right to intimacy

Date: Tuesday, June 25, 2024
Time: 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm AEST

Older people have the same right to intimacy as anyone else. That includes older people who live with dementia or other cognitive impairments. The diverse ways in which older people express their sexuality and gender should be respected by family, carers and aged care workers without judgement.

The discussion, followed by a live Q&A, will unpack the complexities and benefits of continuing intimate relationships as we age and how to navigate these needs safely. 

Panellists include:

  • Dr. Catherine Barrett, Founder/Director, Celebrate Ageing
  • Gwenda Darling, Member, National Older Persons Reference Group, OPAN
  • Shawnee van Poeteren, Senior Project Officer – Advocacy Practice, OPAN
  • Rachael Brennan, PhD Student, The University of Queensland

Hosted by Craig Gear, CEO, OPAN

You are encouraged to submit questions in advance, during registration. We will answer as many as we can. If we don’t get to your question or your question relates to a specific issue or complaint, you can call an advocate on 1800 700 600.

Time zones:
