Many older people living with HIV worry about poverty, loneliness and social care

February 8, 2017

A peer-led research project on the experiences and needs of people living with HIV over the age of 50 has recently been published by Terrence Higgins Trust. Many of those taking part were living below the poverty line and were socially isolated. Many participants had anxieties about their future health, independence and social care.

 

The research found a divide between the experiences of people in their fifties and those in their late sixties and seventies. People of working age, between 50 and 60, tended to express much more anxiety about employment and benefits. For example, they were concerned about being able to find another job if their current one no longer suited them, or they were worried about losing the social security benefits they currently had.
