Adult Protective Services protect vulnerable adults from exploitation, neglect, and abuse.
Adult Protective Services provide services to adults who are partially or completely unable to protect their own interests or who are vulnerable to exploitation, neglect, or injury. Agencies offer screening, investigation, and intervention, as appropriate, to adults who have been mentally, emotionally, physically or sexually abused, or neglected by themselves or others with responsibilities towards them; exploited financially or otherwise; or abandoned. When appropriate, Adult Protective Services assist guardians and caretakers in fulfilling their roles.
