Freedom of Sexual Expression: Dementia and Resident Rights in Long-Term Care Facilities

Narrated by Anne Meara, Freedom of Sexual Expression looks at sexuality and intimacy as basic human rights that should not be denied simply because the person has a level of decreased cognizance and lives in a nursing home.

The video tastefully shows various sexual expressions, the effect of those expressions on the residents and those around them, and methods to allow freedom of sexual expression while maintaining a comfortable environment for other residents and staff.

Freedom of sexual expression also:

  • gives staff members effective strategies to deal with inappropriate sexual behaviors
  • encourages family members to understand and respect their loved one’s continued need for intimacy
  • provides sample policies and procedures on residents’ rights regarding sexual expression and physical protection.
