The number of HIV-positive people requiring care in nursing homes is still low. However, there are obstacles to their admission or care in such institutions. Consequently, they often find themselves being cared for in a hospital setting. Anticipating the needs of these people will help to improve the care and support available and give rise to alternative residential facilities.
