Adult Protective Services

The state requires Adult Protective Services(APS) be provided to investigate and evaluate reports of adults age 60 and over, who are allegedly abused, neglected or exploited.  These adults may be handicapped due to aging or they may have physical or mental impairments which prevent them from providing for their own care and protection.  Adults who experience abuse, neglect and/or exploitation are offered support for protection and self-sufficiency.  Competent adults do have the right to make their own decisions even if family members or the community do not feel these decisions are in the best interest of the adult.

To report a case of suspected abuse or neglect, please call

937-498-4981

M, W, TH, F, 7:30 am. - 4:00 pm. 
Tuesday, 7:30 am. - 6:00 pm. 

After hours you may call the Shelby County Sheriff’s Department at:

937-498-1111

and they will contact an on-call worker.

When making a report, please provide as many details as possible to help us determine whether there is cause for an investigation.
When an investigation is launched, the alleged victim is notified of the reason for it.  For cases determined to be an emergency, an APS staff member will make a home visit within 24 hours.  We begin other investigations within three working days.

When APS determines that intervention is necessary, we develop a plan of action with the older adult and make sure the client receives needed services to ensure safety and security.
