Ryan White Program

As part of the Ryan White Part A C.A.R.E. (Comprehensive AIDS Resource Emergency) Act, the Division of Senior and Adult Services offers home health care to persons living with AIDS in Cuyahoga County. The Ryan White CARE Act provides funding for care to low-income, uninsured and under-insured victims of AIDS and their families. Services are available to eligible adults over the age of 18.

This program has proven to be a significant factor in enabling HIV/AIDS clients to maintain the dignity and comfort of independent living. Our state tested, certified home health aides are experienced in providing the specialized care required by individuals managing this illness.

In addition, our case workers are connected to other HIV/AIDS care agencies to ensure clients have access to comprehensive resources.
