This month: Adult Protective Services

High On Ohio IntroOpportunity Exists: Elder Abuse Services at a Crossroad
In Ohio, 90,000 to 115,000 seniors living in the community were abused, neglected, or exploited, according to the most recent Family Violence in Ohio: Statewide Assessment Report (data from 2010).  Many incidences go unreported, which makes the problem even harder to address. Ohio’s Adult Protective Services program is a fractured system with a history of roller coaster funding and no real leadership.  However, opportunity for improvement exists through the state’s new APS Workgroup and $10 million appropriation.
