Abstract


Purpose: This study aimed to shed light on the experiences of women caregivers’ in nursing homes who provide care for older men; it focuses on sexual behavior and provides baseline data that can help improve quality of care.

Methods: Colaizzi's phenomenological method was used for data analysis. Participants included 10 caregivers working at a nursing home. Face-to-face in-depth interviews were conducted for data collection between January and February, 2020.

Results: Five theme clusters were identified based on women caregivers’ experiences of sexual behavior when caring for older men: “The weight of charge and exhausted stamina” , “Unwillingness to face awkwardness” , “Unacceptable sexual desire by older men” , “An incurable wounded heart”, and “Hardship in its entirety becomes my share of responsibility” . The analysis further yielded ten themes. The participants stated that was hard to accept the older men’s sexual behavior through relationships with the older men.

Conclusion: These results should be considered in planning caring interventions for older men with respect to sexual behavior in nursing homes. The findings support the need for educational strategies and programs to improve the ability of nursing home caregivers to adequately care for older men, with consideration for their sexual behavior and for developing relevant policy supports.
