An Inspired Plan: Rebuilding the Heart of HIV/AIDS Care
As the face of HIV changes, Casey House is pushing the boundaries of HIV/AIDS care with a bold plan for our future. We are constructing a new 58,000 square foot purpose built facility to expand and improve upon our current capacity to provide advanced and esteemed HIV/AIDS specialty health care services, including our inpatient care program, home care program and outreach care program.
The spacious, welcoming new facility will see the launch of a new Day Health Program, revolutionizing the future of advanced HIV/AIDS health care in our city.
Day Health Program
The centrepiece of our capital expansion, the Casey House Day Health Program will expand our continuum of health services and provide one-stop care and treatment for men and women affected by HIV/AIDS, from the time of an emergent crisis through to the need for end-of-life care. Through our new Day Health Program, we will greatly expand our daily capacity, bringing clinical services, community programs, and the clients who benefit from them, together. It will be a cost-effective answer to unmet needs and gaps within the health care system.
- Provide excellent and compassionate health care for a greatly expanded number of people living with HIV/AIDS;
- Meet the health care needs of frail individuals living with advanced HIV/AIDS, by working in coordinated interprofessional teams (physicians, mental health specialists, allied health professionals and complementary therapies providers) to provide convenient, comprehensive health care services;
- Offer people with HIV/AIDS greater opportunity for social interaction in a warm, light-filled and non-judgmental setting, reducing isolation and stigma and thereby improving their overall health;
- Provide meaningful insight into patient needs at the advanced stage of HIV/AIDS (an area that has to date been under-researched worldwide) by expanding our research and educational programs; and
- Help ensure people who live with HIV/AIDS are not forgotten by creating a prominent presence on Jarvis Street to firmly establish Casey House in the consciousness of the city.
