Living with HIV or AIDS and thinking about how to approach and get care can be daunting. Open Door’s Medical Case Managers are the link for people impacted by HIV/AIDS to the services and resources they need. The role of Medical Case Managers is to work with clients to help them optimize their health and create an environment at home that will maximize their opportunities to maintain physical, mental, and emotional well being. To accomplish this, Case Managers engage clients in medical care and help guide and steer them through the medical and social services they require. Their initial interviews help to identify the physical, psychological, financial, emotional and social needs of the client. The continuing relationship they maintain with most clients helps them to identify the changes in clients’ needs and to identify the resources required to ensure clients are getting the best care and services available. In many cases, Medical Case Managers are clients’ most visible and active link to Open Door.
Services offered by Medical Case Managers include:
At Open Door clients can access services without judgment or prejudice. Race/ethnicity, immigration status, socioeconomic status, sexual orientation, gender identity, or past/current drug use are not an issue.
