Adult Protection Services Interventions

When providing protective services, APS strives to secure the safety and protection of the at-risk adult and to ensure, as much as possible, that each case is handled with priority given to the following principals:
  • Confidentiality
  • Consent
  • Self-Determination
  • Least Restrictive Intervention

Douglas County is not in the position to become the guardian or conservator for Adult Protection clients.  Every effort will be made to find a family member or friend to take on this role.

Adult Protection interventions may include access and support for:

  • Legal issues
  • Social issues
  • Medical issues
  • Housing issues
  • Nutrition issues
  • Financial issues
  • Home Health issues
  • Safety issues
