During the Coronavirus/COVID-19 Pandemic, Adult Protective Services is following State guidelines and is prioritizing APS response for the safety of everyone. For those at highest risk and in imminent danger, APS may coordinate with law enforcement or first responders as needed.
Protecting Elder and Dependent Adults
The Adult Protective Services (APS) program helps elder and dependent adults who are victims of abuse, neglect, or exploitation. APS investigates reports of abuse and provides services to prevent and remedy abuse or neglect.
Anyone may report known or suspected elder or dependent adult abuse or neglect to APS. APS receives and responds to reports of abuse or neglect of elders (age 65 or older) and dependent adults (ages 18 to 64 with physical or mental limitations).
