Adult Protective Services

 

 

 

Our Mission: The Sandusky County Adult Protection Services Unit is committed to protecting adults at risk of abuse, neglect or exploitation while recognizing the importance of their right to live independently. This is achieved through the provision of appropriate supportive services and referral to community resources.

Our Mandate: Sandusky County Adult Protection is mandated by the Ohio Revised Code to investigate allegations of abuse, neglect (including self-neglect) and exploitation on adults age 60 and over. Ongoing protective services will be offered if determined necessary by the Department. Furthermore, the agency also offers voluntary services to adults who are 45-59 years old.

In order to achieve our mission and fulfill our mandates, the Sandusky County Adult Protection Unit works very closely with members of the community, other social service and health care agencies, churches, law enforcement and the court system. Furthermore, each individual can play a role in helping us to protect the elderly members of our community. Whether you report concerns regarding an adult or offer assistance to an elderly person in need, as a community we can all assist in ensuring that their latter years are truly "golden."
