Abstract: This videotape, narrated by Anne Meara, looks at sexuality and intimacy as basic human rights that should not be denied simply because the person has impaired cognitive function and lives in a nursing home. It tastefully shows various sexual expressions, the effects 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. The video also gives staff members effective strategies for dealing with inappropriate sexual behaviors, and it provides sample policies and procedures regarding residents’ rights in the areas of sexual expression and physical protection. In addition, it encourages family members to understand and respect their loved one’s continued need for intimacy. The videotape is accompanied by a staff education manual on resident sexuality in the nursing home. The manual covers the same topics as the videotape and includes questions and case examples for discussion.
