Aged Care Workers and HIV & Ageing (Resource)

A

ASHM, 2015

Over the last 35 years, HIV has been transformed from what was once a fatal
illness to a chronic condition that people can now easily manage. Therefore,
people with HIV are able to live longer and reach old age. As people living
with HIV start to access aged care services, what effect will this have on the
Aged Care Worker and the role they perform?

This booklet was developed for Aged Care Workers who work in a range of
residential facilities and in the community providing services to clients in their
own homes. The booklet provides basic information about HIV and the effect
of HIV and HIV treatment on the ageing process.
