Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to fund a program bridging the gap in services for older adult persons living with HIV (PLWH). After conducting a review of the literature, the grant writer designed Positively Aging (PA) to combat health and psychosocial risk factors in this population. PA is an integrated health program providing both HIV and non-HIV services. PA will use medical care coordination strengths-based case management and peer navigation strategies to reduce isolation and loneliness. Services take into account the whole person utilizing a bio-psycho-social-spiritual model, moving the conversation from simply surviving to living well with HIV.

After researching potential funders, California Wellness Foundation, was determined to be the most applicable match for funding the project. The CARE Center, the hosting agency of this project, is located in Long Beach, California.

Actual submission and funding of the grant were not required for the successful completion of this project.
