Today, we’re talking about a complicated and difficult topic that many people aren’t sure how to talk about - us included. We’re having a look at sex and sexuality in residential care, and trying to understand what’s acceptable, what’s not and where’s the line.

Helping us this tricky terrain is Dr. Catherine Barrett who’s founded the organisations Celebrate Ageing, the Opal Institute and Ready to Listen - which focus on building and promoting respect for older adults and includes a lot of work on the sexual rights and responsibilities of older people.

Catherine has released some great and instructive work including the declaration of sexual rights for older adults, and her book Addressing The Sexual Rights of Older People which she published with Sharron Hinchliff.

As always you can hear Daniella and Maurie’s take and thoughts about these ideas in their show Who Cares? which is released every Friday.
