Summary

The Neighborhood Housing and Care Project provides housing and supportive services to people with HIV. We provide interdisciplinary services to our clients in their homes by licensed occupational therapists, nurses and social workers to help them maintain their independence in their own homes or to transition to their home from higher levels of care.

Challenge

As people with HIV age or require additional care or services, they usually would prefer to receive services in their homes rather than go to a facility or hospital. These services are not always available through Medicare or Medicaid or other insurance, and often do not teach people to be independent, but do tasks for them.

Solution

The Neighborhood Housing and Care Program will provide interdisciplinary services to help people maintain their independence as well as keeping people out of more expensive facilities. it will also help to train those people who care for clients to recognize issues related to HIV and how to care for them properly.

Long-Term Impact

The basic long term impact is to provide a more respectful and compassionate choice of care for people with HIV. It also will save money by reducing utilization of higher levels of care such as ER visits and hospitalizations. This project can be a replicable model of care for other chronic illnesses.
