Sex and the senior citizen – in Germany!

A different kind of care for the older person is  emerging in Berlin, according to The Independent

Sex for the elderly facilities have been introduced at Artemis, Germany’s largest luxury “wellness” brothel, in the Berlin district of Charlottenburg, where seats have been installed in showers and clients’ changing rooms have been enlarged to accommodate wheelchairs.

 ‘Helpful personnel’ takes on a whole new meaning. 

The need to provide sex for the elderly has also been recognised by some German retirement homes. The woman director of a Berlin home, who did not want to be identified, said recently that she wanted to offer a “room for intimate encounters” in her establishment.

Memo to the Care Quality Commission: are you suitably equipped to carry out inspections?  Will you rely on self-assessments?  Would this be a requirement too far?
