What is Adult Services

The Adult Services Section provides oversight of social services programs provided by the 100 county departments of social services to older and disabled adults and their families across the state. Some of the services we offer such as Adult Protective Services, Adult Placement Services, Guardianship Services (when ordered by the court), and Health Support Services must be provided by all 100 county departments of social services. Others, such as At-Risk Case Management Services are provided based on county need and available resources.

Some of the services we offer include:

  • Helping county departments of social services apply and interpret federal/state laws and policies; and giving guidance on the best ways to deliver services to older and disabled adults and their families
  • Writing policy and guidelines on how to provide services so that there is consistency among the 100 county departments of social services across the state
  • Developing and providing training to county Department of Social Services staff to ensure services are provided in compliance with federal/state laws and policy; and
  • Working with other agencies and local communities to strengthen and improve services for older and disabled adults and their families across the state

For additional information about the broad array of services available to older and disabled adults and families in North Carolina contact your county department of social services.
