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.
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.
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.
