Ask the Expert: Intimacy and Parkinson’s
Approximately half of all people with Parkinson’s disease (PD) will experience challenges with intimacy and sexual functioning. The sexual wellbeing of people with PD and their partners can be affected by many factors, including both motor and non-motor symptoms, medication side effects, and relationship issues. This topic may be difficult to talk about, but is important to address.

This webinar, led by Elaine Book, Social Worker at the Pacific Parkinson's Research Centre, and Tricia Wallace, Clinical Counsellor at Parkinson Society BC, will review challenges with sexual intimacy. Options to address emotional distance, influenced by physical limitations and role transitions brought on by PD, will also be explored.

We strongly encourage couples to participate in this webinar together. The content will focus on relationships, as well as sharing and communication, and thus the exercises in the webinar will be geared toward couples.

If you will be watching this presentation with a partner or group, only one registration is required. However, registrants will have the opportunity to be anonymous during the webinar.
