Jackson County Adult Protective Services (APS) staff facilitates the Elder Abuse Interdisciplinary Team (I-Team), which meets quarterly at the Jackson County Department of Health and Human Services (JCDHHS). Members of the I-Team include representatives from many agencies and local businesses. The I-Team exist to establish collaboration in the community, with the common purpose to assist adults who are in danger or harm, who are unable to protect themselves and/or have no one else to help them. The goal of the I-Team is to create a collaborative framework that improves response to victims of abuse, neglect, and exploitation. These meeting have proven to be beneficial, as members of the team will bring experiences from their positions and backgrounds which create best practices in service delivery.
If you suspect an elder adult or adult at risk has experienced, is currently experiencing, or is at risk of experiencing abuse, neglect, self-neglect, or financial exploitation, your first step should be to contact the appropriate agency.
