Redefining Intimacy in Parkinson's Disease & Beyond
Wellness Wednesdays: Mental Wellness Series
Physical touch and intimacy are powerful. They strengthen relationship bonds, increase feel-good hormones, lower blood pressure and influence how we see ourselves. In the context of romantic relationships, people often associate sex with intimacy. However, intimacy takes many forms, and – like everything else in a relationship – evolves as people change and new challenges arise.
Join us to learn how others are navigating intimacy changes and challenges during this candid, virtual conversation.
*This webinar contains adult-themed issues and terms.*
