"To provide quality public services to Kings County residents in the most cost effective and efficient way" 

The goal of the Adult Protective Services Program is to provide services to correct conditions which cause dependent or elder adults to be abused, neglected or exploited.  Adult Protective Services is designed to serve elders (age 65 or older) and dependent adults (age 18 through 64 years of age) who are unable to protect their own interests or to care for themselves. APS services are free of charge without regard to income or property if there is a need for protective services. Whenever possible, the Adult Protective Services Program seeks to maintain the elder or dependent adult safely in his or her normal environment by strengthening his or her capacity for self-maintenance. These goals are accomplished through the direct provision of adult protective services or by linking the elder or dependent adult with appropriate community-based resources.
Dependent and elder abuse encompasses the following:

  • Neglect (including self abuse)
  • Financial abuse
  • Abandonment
  • Abduction
  • Physical/Sexual abuse
  • Other treatment resulting in pain and mental suffering
  • Isolation

Elderly Man:  Protect seniors physically, emotionally, financially.
