Protect Vulnerable Adults from Abuse, Neglect and Exploitation
The challenges in meeting the needs of vulnerable adults are to ensure there is no abuse, neglect or exploitation. If we know a vulnerable adult who is not getting the care they need, Adult Protective Services (APS) are available to assist.
APS responds to the following reports concerning a vulnerable adult age 18 or older:
- Neglect by others or self-neglect
- Financial exploitation
Additionally, APS provides education and training to community partners, local service providers, and the public. To make a report, or find out more about APS contact the local Area Agency on Aging.
We can use the area map below to find the nearest Area Agency on Aging for provider information. Also to the right, “Quick Tips” and “Resources” are available to better assist us with finding reliable information and supports.
