Adult Protective Services
VillageCare's Adult Protective Services (APS) is a state-mandated case management program that arranges for services and support for physically and/or mentally impaired adults who are at risk of harm. APS seeks to promptly resolve the risks faced by eligible clients with service plans that will enable these individuals to live independently and safely within their homes and communities. Prospective clients may be referred by anyone.
APS is available to persons 18 years of age and older without regard to income, who:
- Are mentally and/or physically impaired; and
- Due to these impairments, are unable to manage their own resources, carry out the activities of daily living, or protect themselves from abuse, neglect, exploitation or other hazardous situations without assistance from others; and
- Have no one available who is willing and able to assist them responsibly
- There is an APS office in each borough.
Referral is through the NYC Adult Protective Services Central Intake: 212.630.1853.
