Adult Protective Services
Adult Protective Services (APS) is administered by the
Franklin County Office on Aging with funding provided by the Department of Job and Family Services.
Adult Protective Services are those services provided to older
people who are, or are in danger of being mistreated
or neglected, are unable to protect themselves, and have no one to assist them.
Interventions provided by Adult Protective Services include, but
are not limited to, receiving reports of adult abuse, exploitation or neglect, investigating
these reports, case planning, monitoring and evaluation. In addition to casework
services, Adult Protection may provide or arrange for the provision of medical,
social, economic, legal, housing, law enforcement or other protective, emergency
or supportive services.
