About Adult Protective Services
Adult Protective Services (APS) is a social services program provided by state and local governments nationwide serving seniors and adults with disabilities who are in need of assistance because they are victims of abuse, neglect, exploitation or self-neglect. APS workers frequently serve as first responders in these cases, working closely with a wide variety of allied professionals, such as physicians, nurses, paramedics, firefighters and law enforcement officers.
The National Adult Protective Services Association (NAPSA) is a national non-profit 501 (c) (3) organization with members in all fifty states. Formed in 1989, the goal of NAPSA is to provide Adult Protective Services (APS) programs a forum for sharing information, solving problems, and improving the quality of services for victims of elder and vulnerable adult mistreatment.
