This session provides a shared human and clinical perspective on how to approach matters of sexuality for all residents, but with focused considerations for those with dementia or other special needs. The matters of consent, capacity and resident education will be addressed. Suggested approaches will be offered for care planning for issues involving suspected sexual abuse, cases of unwanted sexual contact or contact in circumstances where one or both parties lack capacity to consent.
- Demonstrate an understanding of the regulatory requirements relative to Residents’ Rights for privacy, dignity and choice in matters of sexual expression;
- Create policy and procedure that supports compliance and quality care, addresses capacity and the special considerations for residents with dementia, mental illness or other cognitive or intellectual deficit; and
- Develop staff education and training programs that ensure sensitivity and appropriate accommodation of the human need for sexual expression.
Intended Audience: Appropriate to all staff, with a concentration on the clinical care team
