Case managers assist people living with HIV to assess ongoing needs, develop a plan to meet these needs, and connect people to community resources in order to optimize a client's ability to manage HIV.
Case managers can assist clients in:
- Gaining access to needed health care resources including referrals to physicians specializing in HIV
- Getting information needed to make informed health decisions
- Learning about medication adherence, safer sex, and other risk reduction techniques and health–enhancing behaviors
- Accessing needed resources such as support groups, chemical dependency treatment facilities, legal assistance, vocational rehabilitation services, and mental health resources
- Planning budgets and accessing applications to disability and insurance programs
- Developing a supportive network, whether through friends, family or a support group, that clients can rely on when needed
Case management services are provided for HIV–positive people in the Twin Cities metro area as well as Duluth and its surrounding counties. For more information on case management, contact:
