The National Center on Elder Abuse has put together a very useful set of charts and information about various state laws governing adult protective services. This resource is especially useful for attorneys who practice in nursing home abuse and neglect or handle other legal matters for nursing home residents who may need to consider state resources for clients who may lack capacity. This information is also helpful for families who may not have sufficient resources to take care of all of their elder’s needs and need to seek assistance from the state. Additionally, some nursing home residents without active family members may come under state care if they are no longer able to participate in their care or are suffering from a condition that impairs their abilities sufficiently.
