 ‘ 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
