Adult Protection Is NCCD Blog Focus
May was designated Older Americans Month by the Administration on Aging 55 years ago to recognize the ways our country’s older adults enrich the lives of others. NCCD is using this month to draw attention to those older adults who are unable to live up to their potential due to abuse, neglect, self-neglect, and financial exploitation and may benefit from adult protective services (APS). Through the rest of the month, we are featuring blog posts that look at the role of APS in keeping older adults safe and how NCCD’s Structured Decision Making® system
contributes to those efforts. Visit our website
in the coming weeks to read these blog posts; the first blog post
is available now.
