HIV is a very complicated disease that many of us know little about.

Generally speaking, it is not a common topic among caregiver communities or support groups, but HIV is something that needs to make its way into mainstream caregiver conversations and policy considerations. HIV is a chronic disease and it is a relevant and important topic as those living with HIV are getting older and their symptoms and on-going needs can be complex.

This week’s guest on Caregivers’ Circle, Dr. Meredith Greene MD, joins me in exploring issues related to HIV, caregiving and aging.
