Case Management is available to people with HIV/AIDS. Case managers work with clients to assist in the coordination of needed social and medical services, provide linkage to other area human service agencies, and help in the organization of a care plan. An important component of case management involves assisting clients through complex medical and social systems to access needed resources. Emphasis is placed on improving individual quality of life and supporting client-centered decision making.
Case managers strive to provide current information and consistent support to the client, their partners and loved ones. Click here to contact a case manager.
