The five elected Supervisors run the County like a business, relying on the General Management System (GMS), a structure emphasizing accountability, efficiency and customer service. Adult Protective Services (APS) APS, a division of the County's Aging & Independence Services, accepts reports of suspected abuse of elders/dependent adults in facilities as long as the alleged abuser is a non-resident and a non-employee.
Adult Protective Services responsibilities include: Investigating reports of abuse, neglect, and exploitation of adults who are elderly or have disabilities. Conducting investigations and providing services when those adults live in the community. Educating the public about prevention of elder abuse. Adult Protective Services agencies investigate reports of abuse that occur in private homes, acute care hospitals, clinics, adult day care facilities and social day care centers.
