PROGRAMS FOR DIAGNOSED PERSONS
Our Services to Clients Already Living with HIV/AIDS
Clients navigate a complicated world of doctor’s appointments and other special service needs. Case managers form one-on-one relationships and help clients enroll or recertify for both medical and non-medical services.
Transportation can be a barrier to accessing vital services. This program provides bus passes, van rides or taxi services for clients to reach and maintain medical treatment, care and other support opportunities such as counseling and education classes.
Healthy living with HIV means proper adherence to medication. These medicines often require a nutritious meal to be effective. Our meals program provides breakfast and lunch prepared and served fresh daily and works with a certified nutritionist to meet the dietary needs of persons living with HIV.
After meals, clients have access to this center-based program of non-medical support. The Daire Center is a safe space for stabilization. Games, art and education classes allow for skills-building, and provide respite for caregivers.
AIN provides Spanish language interpretation and translation of written documents for Spanish speaking clients, caregivers, and other service providers.
