Elder Justice Initiative & Adult Protective Services teams collaborate to better serve seniors
The Legal Aid Society’s (LAS) Elder Justice Initiative and Metropolitan’s Adult Protective Services (APS) program have recently been working to further integrate their services, with the goal of providing more holistic, comprehensive support to the seniors Metropolitan serves.
As part of that continually evolving partnership, LAS’s Elder Justice Initiative presented to APS caseworkers. Managing Attorney Melanie MacBride joined Staff Attorneys Mark Alanson and Erica Asbell to discuss the LAS programs most relevant to the senior population. Additionally, they went over an expedited process for APS staff to refer clients to LAS, which will simplify the process of requesting services for seniors.
