Adult Protective Services (APS)
An APS Social Worker will interview the victim alone. The APS worker may also interview family members and the suspected abuser, if given permission by the victim.
If the abuse is criminal, the APS worker will make a report to the police. The APS worker will also work to keep the family together, if possible, while eliminating the abuse, if that is the victim’s desire.
The APS worker will consult with the victim about what community services are available to insure his or her safety. With the victim’s consent, the APS worker will arrange for the needed services.
