Home Health Program

Our Home Health Program helps you stay independent while remaining at home for as long as possible.

APLA Health provides intensive case-management services for HIV+ clients who are in need of home-based services.
Each client is assigned both a registered nurse case manager and social work case manager. This way, we ensure that all of a client’s complex needs will be addressed by a professional with the necessary specialized knowledge and expertise.
The program uses a team approach to case management. Our team provides medical case management, psychosocial services and attendant care to clients in their homes.

Personalized, Compassionate Care
Your registered nurse case manager can help arrange for limited in-home care to assist with daily living activities and household management. You will also receive treatment advocacy with your primary care physician; medication information; and help maintaining your treatment regimen.

Your social work case manager can help you access various services, including in-home mental health counseling, legal services, housing assistance, benefits counseling and medical transportation.

SERVICES WE PROVIDE

Management of HIV-Related Symptoms

The home health program can assist with management of illnesses or conditions directly caused by your HIV.

Assistance With Other Health Conditions

People usually don’t have one medical condition and those with HIV often see other medical conditions, including heart disease and diabetes. We can assist with illnesses or conditions unrelated to HIV, but that may complicate your HIV treatment.

Medication Management

We can provide assistance in understanding what your medications are for and how to stay organized with your pill regimen.

Mental Health Counseling

Our home health team can coordinate in-home therapy sessions that help address feelings of depression, anxiety, and isolation.

Substance Abuse Counseling

APLA Health can offer non-judgmental and supportive interventions to help address any alcohol or drug use you feel you might need help with.
