Adult Protective Services provides ongoing adult services, companion services, adult day care, and protection to enable aged or disabled adults to remain in their own homes rather than move to institutions. APS offers protective services to safeguard and defend adults from abuse, neglect, or exploitation. Transitional services are also provided to adults once they are released from institutions and returning to the community. Assistance is provided to people in nursing homes as well.
APS also utilizes Auxiliary Grants which provides cash payment for aged, blind or disabled individuals who reside in a licensed Assisted Living Facility (ALF). The auxiliary grant payment makes up the shortfall between an individual's income and the state rate charged by the ALF.
Adult Protective Services are provided 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
