Adult Protective Services (APS) is a state-mandated program that provides limited intervention in the form of information and referral, assessment, and case management services to elderly (65 and older) and dependent adults (18-64) who are at suffering from or at risk of abuse, exploitation, or neglect, including self-neglect. APS also provides services to prevent and remedy the abuse, neglect, or exploitation of elders and dependent adults who are unable to protect their own interests or care for themselves, and, whenever possible, seeks to keep the individual safely in his or her normal environment by strengthening his/her capacity for self-maintenance. This may be accomplished through direct provision of APS or by linking the individual with appropriate community resources.

Any elder or dependent adult is eligible for Adult Protective Services if they: 

  • Reside in housing other than a long-term care facility, state hospital or state developmental center;
  • Are alleged to have been abused and/or neglected, and
  • Have been determined by APS to be in need of service.


How to Obtain Services

Any dependent adult 18 through 64 years of age and elders 65 years of age or older who are Yolo County residents and the subject of suspected physical or financial abuse, neglect, abandonment, abduction, isolation, deprivation of goods or services or other treatment with resulting pain or mental suffering are eligible for APS support. Anyone can make a referral alleging abuse or neglect by calling (530) 661-2727 or 1-888-675-1115.
