As HIV continues to change and the population ages, we see more people with HIV needing additional care. We also notice that many residential care facilities do not know how to care for someone with HIV. There is still a lot of stigma surrounding HIV and how to compassionately care for those with this diagnosis.
Recently we chatted with leaders of the new Coordinated Care Organizations in Oregon to discuss the best way to care for people with HIV. We feel that we need proper training and education for all caregivers that care for anyone with an HIV diagnosis. This will minimize the stigma and provide more compassionate care for those that need additional consideration.
We will continue to provide information, eduation and training to those caregivers that need additional help with some of our clients. We will also push for additional funding for this project.
