Thanks to improvement in treatment, people with HIV are living longer than ever before. However, people living with HIV are at increased risk for cognitive (thinking) problems. Therefore, it is especially important for people living with HIV to take care of their brains.
The HIV Supportive Services program is designed to raise awareness of cognitive changes and provide specialized support to those living with HIV and cognitive decline. It also provides education and support to HIV professionals to help them provide more dementia-competent care.:
This program is run in conjunction with the Michigan Alzheimer's Disease Research Center (MADRC) and funded by the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS).
