Creating Training Modules

Exercise Class for Clients
Exercise Class for Clients

Although we have not yet heard if we will receive a grant to fund this project, we have begun to create the basis for training.  Several of the clinical staff have been doing research and have created presentations for meetings, seminars and webinars.  This helps us to see how much need there is out in the communities for this service. 

As we provide continue to provide services for people with HIV/AIDS in their homes, we see an increasing need for this type of training - not only for the caregivers, but for the clients themselves.  If we can create an environment where medication management, safety, exercise and good nutrition is a priority, we can avoid many more expensive alternatives for care such as hospitalizations or ER visits.

We are also working with some of the organizations who are creating the Coordinated Care Organizations for Oregon (CCO's) where funding this project is a good possibility.
