Are Informal Caregivers Important in AIDS Care?
What do caregivers do?
Informal caregivers of people with AIDS (PWAs) provide practical help and nursing care at home. They are often the lovers, spouses, friends, or family of someone with AIDS and are not professional care providers. The service they provide is essential to the scope of AIDS care services and saves society great expense. AIDS care services in the US have shifted from hospital-based care to community-based and in-home care.
