COMMUNITY CARE HIV/AIDS PROGRAM (CCHAP) serves persons of all ages who have been diagnosed as living with HIV or AIDS, and who need assistance with remaining independent in their homes.
CCHAP Provides Case Management Services to:
People in Lake and Mendocino Counties who have been diagnosed with HIV or AIDS.
There are no fees for our services.
You may be asking yourself what case management is, and whether or not it can help you right now. Case management is enlisting the services and expertise of a registered nurse and professional social worker to assist you with problems and adjustments, as you learn to live with HIV or AIDS. For example, you might need help getting Social Security benefits, getting information about medications, or simply need someone to serve as a sounding board. Our case managers can help you with domestic, financial, and emotional issues, and make sure you are getting health care information, as well as, any other services that foster an independent, healthy lifestyle. For your protection, we maintain strict confidentiality standards.
HIV without symptoms (Asymptomatic HIV):
From the time you found out that you were living with HIV or AIDS, your world probably turned upside down. We understand these feelings and thoughts. We will be able to help you sort through the complex series of questions that you may be asking yourself. Perhaps most importantly, we are here to guide you as you make steps toward health and wellness, so that the possibility of you becoming ill may be greatly reduced.
AIDS or Symptomatic HIV:
If you are unable to carry out normal activities or maintain a regular work schedule, you may qualify for more intensive case management services and additional benefits. CCHAP's nurse and social worker will meet with you on a regular basis to be certain that you are getting appropriate medical services and receiving any public benefits you may need.
Our Goal at CCHAP:
Whether you have symptoms or not, CCHAP’s Case Managers are committed to helping you manage your care, answer any questions you may have, and assist you with following your treatment plan, so that you may stay as healthy as possible, for as long as possible. Our goal is to help you avoid unnecessary and disruptive hospital visits, so that you may remain in the comfort of your own home. Please feel free to call us with your questions and concerns. Remember, there are not any stupid questions.
Your donations are greatly appreciated.
Funds are used to pay for much needed client services that our grants don't cover. In most cases, since much of our administration expenses are paid by other funding sources, your donation can be used almost entirely to pay for client services. Many donations are in memory of a loved one.
Checks can be made out to CCMC. If you wish, you can make a notation to indicate which program you would like your gift to go towards (you can also indicate which site, such as CCHAP Ukiah, Fort Bragg or Lake County).
