Sexuality in Long-Term Care Sexual Advances Toward Staff

“If I bent over to talk to him, he’d try to kiss me.”

“A friendly hug became sexual.”

What happens when residents respond sexually to staff members who are providing routine care? This video broaches a necessary discussion on how to handle physical and verbal sexual advances from confused or lonely residents. It stresses the importance of clarifying boundaries, seeking help early, and documenting the behavior. These practical suggestions provide ways to ensure staff safety while maintaining the resident’s dignity. Presented by Georgia Stevens, PhD, APRN, BC.
