Together they share knowledge and experiences regarding elderly people and nursing home residents with dementia. They compile a series of fascinating stories about love, intimacy, romance, and sexual activity among seniors and Alzheimer's patients. What's more, Annie and Sherry have begun to deal with several serious problems and hurdles often faced by the elderly, further complicating their consideration of elderly issues.
