Sexual Expression Policy Development – A Guide

Sexual Expression Policy Development – A Guide for Long-Term Facilities & Assisted Living Programs.

Sexuality is a basic human need and the choice to be sexually expressive is one that belongs to the individual. The right to freedom of sexual expression among residents in long-term care facilities (LTCFs) and tenants of assisted living programs (ALPs) has proven to be a sensitive and sometimes controversial topic, particularly when cognitive capacity is in question.

The Office of the Long Term Care Ombudsman and Disability Rights Iowa have developed materials to act as a guide for meaningful dialogue.
