Rx Home Care Service AIDS Project is a state-funded program that allows people living with symptomatic HIV or AIDS to receive care and remain in the comfort of their own home. RN and Social Work Case Managers team up with every client to monitor their needs and connect them with many community resources. This service is free and we service both Sacramento and Yolo Counties.
Our Case Managers work in coordination with our Home Health Department to provide skilled nursing in your home. Skilled Nursing is provided by RNs and LVNs whose main function is to assess and evaluate your nursing needs, and to perform rehabilitative and preventive procedures that are instructed by your physician for your own safety.
