Adult Protective Services are available to help vulnerable adults age 60 and older who are in danger of harm, unable to protect themselves or have no one to assist them.


APS will investigate any report of alleged abuse, neglect, self neglect or exploitation of any Washington County resident age 60 or older, if they reside in in an independent living arrangement. The arrangements included are a private home, apartment, trailer or adult care facility license pursuant to section 5119.70 ORC.


If you have any knowledge of or suspect any abuse, please email our Social Services dept or call us at 740-373-5513 or 740-236-7095 for after hour emergencies. Ask to speak with a social services worker.
