What is the purpose of an adult protective services investigation?

The purpose of an adult protective services investigation is to:
(1) Investigate allegations of abandonment, abuse, financial exploitation, neglect, or self-neglect.
(2) Provide protective services with the consent of the vulnerable adult or his or her legal representative when the allegation is substantiated, or prior to substantiation when it appears abandonment, abuse, financial exploitation, neglect or self-neglect may be occurring and protective services could assist in ending or preventing harm to the vulnerable adult.
(3) When an allegation is substantiated, APS may investigate whether other vulnerable adults may be at current risk of abuse, neglect, abandonment or financial exploitation by the person.
