Urgent Services Provided
The purpose of Weld County Adult Protective Services is to support and protect at-risk adults from self-neglect or mistreatment by investigating allegations, advocating for clients and when needed, arranging for services to stop or prevent harm by using the least restrictive intervention and respecting self-determination.
When appropriate, APS can assist the at-risk adult to arrange for services. An at-risk adult is anyone age 18 or older who is unable to meet their own basic needs or arrange services to meet their basic needs without assistance due to a physical or mental condition.
