Adult Protection

Mission Statement

Adult Protective Services staff investigate reports of abuse, neglect (including self-neglect) or financial exploration of adults age 60 and over who are unable to protect themselves due to a serious physical or mental limitation. APS staff assess the need for protective services and provide services to reduce the identified risk to the adult by collaborating with family and other community partners.


*To make a report of abuse or neglect involving an adult age 60 or over that is unable to protect themselves due to serious physical or mental limitations, telephone 419-739-6505.
