Adult Protective Services provides support and assistance to vulnerable adults, 18 years of age and older, who are subjected to abuse, neglect and/or exploitation and are unable to protect themselves. A social worker provides an assessment of the risks endangering the adult and provides a care plan designed to protect the adult's health and well-being.

Emergency After Hours: 211
(contd) Services to assist such adults are arranged through contact with local provider agencies. Court action may be initiated in accordance with NJSA-52:249, known as the Adult Protective Services Act of 1994. NJ-211 provides assistance for emergent issues that arise after business hours or when the Ocean County Board of Social Services is closed.
