Adult Protective Services (APS)
A state-mandated service provided by every county with the goal of keeping vulnerable adults safely residing in the community or in the least restrictive alternative. It involves intake, investigation, and assessment of referrals of abuse, neglect, and financial exploitation of qualifying vulnerable adults. APS workers develop services plans with eligible clients to remedy physical abuse, sexual abuse, emotional abuse, neglect, financial exploitation, or to address unmet, essential needs of adults.
Individuals ages 18 years and older:
- with a physical or mental impairment
- who are at risk of harm either by their own or others' actions
- who have no one willing or able to responsibly assist
