HIV POSITIVE CLIENT CARE PROGRAM
WHAT DO I DO?
The Client Care program works directly with people living with HIV/AIDS. It is built upon the understanding that the capacity to manage and maintain health while living with HIV/AIDS is determined, in part, by factors such as income level, housing, access to care, access to health services, access to quality health care, and individual coping skills.
Our Client Care Coordinator works in conjunction with individuals to determine personal needs and together design supportive plans which may include but are not limited to: practical needs (food, clothing), health services (transportation, education, medication, and nutrition), support (counseling, alternative treatments), housing issues and referrals to other agencies.
Our Client Care Coordinator provides support on a one to one basis; the coordinator makes home visits, hospital visits, plans social activities with client and meets the client where they are at. If clients wish to disclose their positive status to individuals or in a family or friend setting, the coordinator aids in facilitating the conversation while debunking myths and enhancing education around HIV/AIDS.
Through the Jerome Nagel and Ric Ranger Wellness fund, our Client Care Coordinator can provide financial support to positive clients including help with medication, transportation, infant formula, and psychological counselling.
