Case: A 55-Year-Old HIV-Infected Woman With Cognitive Difficulties: Follow-Up

The patient’s family continues to work together to keep her living at home. She has resumed taking her HIV medications without difficulty but this will likely be a recurring issue. The most difficult decision point in this patient’s care will occur when the family is no longer able to take care of her. For now, she continues to have regular follow-up, although physical and laboratory evaluations are becoming more challenging. According to her family and the HIV care practitioner’s brief assessments, she seems to be happy.
