We believe no one living with HIV or AIDS should go without medical care, everyday resources, and emotional support.
All our services are free and confidential. Palmetto Community Care does not share any information with other agencies without the written consent of its clients.
Our intake assessment is a comprehensive process that will help assess your overall needs, including financial assistance with housing or utilities and medical treatment or medications. Most clients have diverse requirements, and all are addressed during the assessment interview.
All our clients are informed and educated about HIV and its impact on our their lives and health. We also make sure that we spend time with each individual covering topics like risk reduction, medical options and medication compliance. All clients are also given a nutritional assessment and provided access to our emergency food pantry. This is an important part to make sure that the body is being given the support it needs during these tough times. Clients may be given referrals to medical care and substance abuse counseling as well as financial management.
PCC’s medical case management staff use supportive services to assist clients with the completion of their service plans. Supportive services include risk reduction, mental health services, support groups, housing assistance, legal assistance, financial management, food and nutritional support/education, medication adherence, and volunteer services. Weekly support groups are offered as a way for clients to increase personal well-being and improve mental strength.
The most important part of the case manager/client collaboration is mutual respect, trust, and a willingness to meet challenges together. PCC case managers are compassionate, caring, and hardworking; they are always willing to take that extra step for their clients and it shows in the number of success stories that are part of PCC’s long history.
