This video was designed for staff who work in-home care and hospice settings, assisted living communities, nursing homes, CCRC, adult daycare, hospitals, psychiatric facilities, rehabilitation departments, state agencies such as surveyors, office on aging, ombudsman office, association staff, CNA training schools, students enrolled in healthcare-related degree programs., etc. The video is appropriate to share with clergy, volunteers, families, and caregivers.

Let's get real and discuss some of the pressing issues that caregivers and staff face regarding sexuality and intimacy in the elderly with a diagnosis of Dementia. This topic is rarely discussed and very little training is provided in the area of sexuality and intimacy. This leaves staff and caregivers ill-prepared to handle sensitive situations.

The video presentation is designed to educate families, front-line staff, health care professionals, state agency staff, association staff, caregivers, management company staff and educators who work in all aspects of health care where elder care is provided or supported.

Worldwide, there are very few educational resources focused on sexual expression in the elderly and the emotional, psychological, cognitive, and physical impact that can occur when an elder's sexuality and issues regarding intimacy are not considered, mishandled, or misunderstood.

This educational resource attempts to dispel myths about intimacy and aging as well as addresses concerns that staff may have related to sexual expression as it relates to health problems, LGBT concerns, and dementia. Common questions are addressed that provide staff with commonsense approaches, with a focus on person-centered care and understanding the rights of the elder. The video provides a link to a complimentary file of handouts to accompany the presentation.
