Presented by Kathleen Weissberg, OTD, OTR/L

Course: #3343 Level: Intermediate2 Hours
What is sexuality and why is it so seldom spoken of when talking about older adults, particularly those in long-term care? Sexuality and intimacy are essential elements of one’s personality. Thus, it is important that residents, staff, and therapists in LTC have skills to effectively and compassionately address sexuality including misconceptions, personal and cultural views or biases, and barriers. This course explores the perceptions and perspectives of residents, staff, caregivers, and family members related to sexuality and intimacy. The course provides opportunities for people who have not given this topic much thought to consider their views, identify barriers, consider consent, and facilitate solutions and strategies when sexual expression becomes problematic. The specific role of occupational therapy related to intimacy with various diagnoses including diabetes, CVA, cancer, and arthritis is reviewed.
