Last year, in 2011, a switch happened. People living in San Francisco with HIV/AIDS had birthdays, and the majority of them were over 50. In the years to come, other cities will follow, and the country will have to consider how to best provide services to seniors living with HIV or AIDS.
Pushing Limits gives us a heads up on all this with the rebroadcast of Raphaella Bennin’s thoughtful exploration of Aging with HIV or AIDS.
Very little planning has been made to address the needs of this population who’s health, social, financial, and medical needs are different than those of the average senior.
Learn more about what makes these folks unique, and the issues people over 50 with HIV/AIDS are facing.
Bennin speaks with researcher, advocate and long-time survivor Steve Manley, and advocates and long time survivors, F. Ross Woodall, and Loren Jones.
