Westside’s AIDS Home Care Service allows hundreds of San Franciscans living with disabling HIV/AIDS to remain in their homes during the later stages of their illness. Providing home care services helps clients maintain quality of life both physically and psychologically. The home care resources provided through Ryan White Title I monies through the City and County of San Francisco, the State General Fund, and the Medi-Cal AIDS Waiver Program provide much needed support at a time when the funding systems for the healthcare system are struggling.
Westside’s AIDS Case Management Services provides a system of assessment, planning, service procurement, delivery, coordination, and disease monitoring to people with disabling HIV/AIDS. The services enable people suffering from HIV-related illnesses to obtain the medical, social, and home care services they need to sustain them through their illness. Westside is focused on serving African Americans and other underserved populations, those with prior diagnosis of mental illness, substance users, and those with limited financial resources.
Westside’s Case Management Services optimize the client’s self-care capabilities, promotes efficient use of resources, and stimulates the creation of new services
