PROSTITUTES have been invited to a care home to have sex with disabled residents — sparking an investigation by the council.

Hookers regularly go for “special visits” at Chaseley nursing home in Eastbourne, Sussex.

They meet residents in a special room and a red sock is put on the door handle so staff know not to disturb them.

Bosses say many physically and mentally disabled people have no other sexual outlet - and become so frustrated they often resort to GROPING staff.

Care workers say the “sex surrogates” are “therapeutic” and experts claim they are a ”basic human right”.

But East Sussex County Council has launched an urgent investigation into possible “exploitation and abuse” of vulnerable people.

Sue Wyatt, Chaseley’s manager, has confirmed prostitutes are welcomed at the home and said they are ordered by a "third party consultant".

Mrs Wyatt said: “People have needs, so sometimes we might need to set up a room in a certain way. We are there to help.

“We use a private consultant who arranges everything. They are an independent person who works in the home. She puts people in touch with people.

“We respect our residents as individuals so that’s why we help this to happen.”

The practice at the home was revealed by its former manager Helena Barrow.

She said: “The fact is sex workers are allowed by law to sexually enable people but care workers are not.

“So, if someone asked, we would often call in a professional, someone trained to do that. It’s known as the resident’s ‘special visit’.

“If you have a resident who is groping staff, one way of resolving that problem is to get a sex worker in who is trained to deal with that situation.

“But most of the time, these are people who feel frustrated by a primeval need they cannot fulfil.

“So we would help them with the phone, dial the number, or use the computer to contact someone who could help.

“If we refused, we would not be delivering a holistic level of care.”

Mrs Barrow, who now manages another care home in St Leonards, Sussex, insisted residents always paid for the call girls themselves.

Staff would then put a “special red sock” on the door handle to make sure the couple were not disturbed before checking on them every 15 minutes.

On one occasion, local strippers were invited into the home to perform a “special show” for residents.

Chaseley is an ex-military nursing home which now houses a mix of residents whose places are funded by private arrangements or by social services.

A spokesman for East Sussex County Council said the local authority had been unaware of Chaseley’s policy of inviting prostitutes on site and “did not welcome” the idea.

He said: “We will examine our concerns through the Pan-Sussex Multi-Agency Policy and Procedures for Safeguarding Adults at Risk.

“This has the potential to place vulnerable East Sussex residents at risk of exploitation and abuse.”
