Who Is a Vulnerable Adult?
Any person 18 years or older who is a:
- Resident or inpatient of a licensed facility.
- Recipient of care from a licensed adult day care or services program.
- Recipient of services from a licensed home care provider.
- Recipient of personal care assistant services under the Medical Assistance program.
- Any person 18 years of age or older who, regardless of residence or whether any type of service is received, possesses a physical, mental, or emotional impairment which limits that person’s ability to provide adequately for his or her own care without help.
AND, who has an impaired ability to protect himself or herself from harm.
Those who cannot take care of themselves are at risk. Unfortunately, our opportunitistic world includes those who will prey on them. The Vulnerable Adult Justice Project is our effort to protect those who can't provide adequate care for themselves. Join us, won't you?
