HIV and AIDS
For people living with HIV and AIDS and their carers support is available from Darlington Adult Social Services.
It may include:
- Information on HIV and AIDS, other organisations available to support you, and issues such as benefits, housing, leisure and work or practical support in your home (such as help with washing, dressing, meal preparation)
- Equipment and adaptations to your home
- Short breaks for you and your carer
The range of support available depends on individual circumstances and in order to work out how much, and what type of, support you need, an assessment will be carried out.
You can find out more information about the assessment process
For more information, you can contact the Specialist HIV/AIDS worker. Telephone 01325 346719.
How Much Does it Cost?
There may be a cost for your services. This will depend on the type and amount of support you receive.
Can I Get Help With the Cost?
To see if you can get help towards the cost of your care, a financial assessment will need to be carried out. You can find out more information on the financial assessment
Other Ways to Get Support
