The objective of HIV Care Services is to ensure access to HIV care and improve the quality of life for people infected or affected by HIV. BCAP provides medical case management, emotional support, practical help, and limited financial assistance to its HIV+ clients. With your approval, your friends and family members can also receive information and emotional support.
Case managers help identify and prioritize your current needs. We are able to give you information about local healthcare providers (HIV specialty and primary care), access to medication, insurance information, referrals to resources within BCAP and the community, assistance in filing applications, practical information, advocacy and emotional support. Your needs and progress are monitored over time. Case managers work to support individuals toward self-sufficiency through education and empowerment. Through assessment, planning, referral and monitoring, case managers assist you to develop tools to reach your own unique potential and reach your goals.
