ADvancing States is pleased to publish findings from the 2022 national survey of Adult Protective Services (APS) Programs in the report Adult Protective Services in 2022: Responding to Evolving Needs in a Changing Environment. ADvancing States conducted this survey to assess the current state of APS programs and identify trends related to topics such as caseload, staff retention, and client assessment. Additionally, there was a special focus placed on clients experiencing self-neglect. Since the prior ADvancing States APS report was published, Adult Protective Services in 2012: Increasingly Vulnerable, the field of APS has experienced a variety of new opportunities and challenges. With these new opportunities and challenges, it is clear that APS programs are responding to the needs of their clients in an evolving environment. This report describes programmatic elements of APS; focuses on the people that APS serve and identifies needed services; and centers on Medicaid and explores opportunities to expand APS’ relationship with Medicaid.
