Sexuality in the Elderly Course Introductory Video
Dr Drew Dwyer - Consultant Gerontologist

Assessment, Care Planning and Management

Understand & clinically assess the sexual needs of older people for appropriate care planning and behaviour management.

The elderly in care have legitimate intimate needs as human beings, which requires support and clinical application through a best practice model of assessment, care planning and management. Unfortunately, this is often not the case, with their sexual needs either being ignored or the underlying issue not being clinically handled correctly. 

The learning outcomes in this seminar provide an understanding of the sexual needs of clients, intimacy and relationships, love and belongingness.  The enhanced knowledge includes LGBTI client needs, and designing and delivering services that are truly person-centred, supported by accurate clinical assessment and appropriate care plans providing the basis for managing this taboo area of care.
