British Nursing Home Provides Prostitutes, Strippers for Residents

Should a nursing home's efforts to take care of its residents extend to inviting prostitutes and strippers to offer their services? That's the question being asked after reports that British nursing home Chaseley Trust, which is located in a seaside mansion, is doing just that. Manager Helena Barrow told The Sun newspaper, "People have needs. We are there to help. We respect our residents as individuals so that's why we help this to happen. If we refused, we would not be delivering a holistic level of care." Barrow says the practice has the support of Chaseley's staff, who might otherwise be sexually harassed by the residents, some of whom are as young as 18 and have neurological conditions. She told the newspaper, "Most of the time, these are people who feel frustrated by a primeval need they cannot fulfill." The revelation has set off a nationwide debate in Britain over the rights of the disabled, and over the role of sex in assisted living facilities. Meanwhile, the local East Sussex County Council has started an investigation, with a spokesman telling The Inquisitr, "This has the potential to place vulnerable East Sussex residents at risk of exploitation and abuse." What do you think of this nursing home inviting prostitutes and strippers to offer their services to residents? How do you feel about Barrow's explanation that offering these services is part of a "holistic level of care," and that it helps to prevent sexual harassment of the staff? Is the right to sex something everyone is entitled to, therefore falling under the umbrella of rights to the disabled that they should be guaranteed?
