1. to identify the common self-care problems encountered by individuals with AIDS who are living at home
2. to describe the types of support that individuals with AIDS receive at home
3. to identify issues that need be addressed by home support programs for clients with AIDS.
National Health Research and Development Program NHRDP Project No. 6610-1579 Final Report
Geriatric care is one of six program and service areas focused on after the ROARS (Review of Acute and Rehabilitation Services) review of 1998. A committee was developed with the mandate to support and enhance the current system of older adult care, and to articulate a vision for an integrated, anticipatory model of future services built on existing programs.
