In September 2021, The Medina County Adult Protective Services Program (APS) moved from Medina County Job and Family Services Department (MCJFS) and began operations under the umbrella of the Medina County Office for Older Adults (MCOOA).
Adult Protective Services help those age 60 or older who are in danger of harm, are unable to protect themselves, and may have no one to assist them. APS Specialists investigate and create case plans to help ensure senior safety in the community. They assess the risk to the adult in their living situation, determine the appropriate intervention and offer services to enable the adult to remain independent in the community.
If you suspect that a vulnerable older adult may be a victim of abuse, neglect, or exploitation, do not hesitate to call the Adult Protective Services Hotline at 330-661-0800.
