ADULT PROTECTIVE SERVICES
Adult Protective Services (APS) is mandated by the State and is a 24-hour service program that investigates all situations involving seniors (age 65 and older) and dependent adults (age 18-64 and physically or mentally impaired) who are reported to be endangered by physical, sexual, and financial abuse, isolation, neglect or self-neglect.
APS is defined by the Welfare and Institutions Code 15610.10 as the agency that provides preventive and remedial activities performed on behalf of elders and dependent adults who are unable to protect their own interests, harmed, or threatened with harm, caused physical or mental injury due to the action or inaction of another person or their own action as a result of ignorance, illiteracy, incompetence, mental limitation, substance abuse, or poor health, lacking in adequate food, shelter, or clothing, exploited of their income and resources, or deprived of entitlement due them.
