Adult Protective Services

http://www.area2aging.org/pages/subpages/aps.html

Phone: (406) 595-0085

Adult Protective Services (APS) is an agency given authority by the Montana legislature to investigate reports of abuse, neglect, and exploitation of individuals over 60 years of age or developmentally disabled and over 18 years of age. In instances of imminent danger to the individual, APS may remove the individual from danger and arrange for a safe, temporary living situation. Where do I report incidents of abuse, neglect, or exploitation? Montana Law requires you to report incidents of abuse, neglect, and exploitation to the Department of Public Health and Human Services or its local affiliate, Adult Protective Services, or to the local County Attorney where the person lives or where the act took place. If the person resides in a long-term care facility, the incident should be reported to the long-term care ombudsman program. If the person is in imminent danger, the incident should be reported immediately to local law enforcement or "911". Statewide Elder Help Line 1-800-551-3191

The Homemaker program allows a person to maintain their dignity and independence by providing assistance with activities of daily living such as bathing, grooming, and housekeeping thus allowing them to remain in their home as long as safely possible. With each visit our Homemakers assist with tasks and monitor for concerning changes in living conditions. Monthly visits by a nurse are conducted to detect adverse changes in the person’s health, assure adequacy of services, and assess nutritional needs. Early intervention frequently prevents complications that may otherwise lead to hospitalization or nursing home placement. The Homemaker program develops and delivers services based on an individual’s needs as well as considering the nature of their support system of family and friends.
