‘ Be brave and Lift the lid .. it’s right to do this, people
need us to do this. Couples may think that romance,
sex, intimacy and their personal relationship is out
of bounds when one partner is living in a care home
and we do nothing now to support them to think
otherwise – this has opened my eyes !’
Michelle, Care Home Manager
What is Lift the lid?
‘ Lift the lid, normalises a conversation that is
needed but kept hidden…The activities give staff an
understanding, ability and confidence to respond in
an appropriate, respectful manner, and to not react
out of embarrassment and fear. This should be about
dignified care and this will help us to provide that’.
Jessica, Team Leader
