December 20, 2021: Due to website issues, the APS toolkit is being reconstructed. Thank you for your patience.

This Adult Protective Services (APS) toolkit would not have been possible without the generous contributions from numerous county APS system workers, the Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) staff, and the Greater Wisconsin Agency on Aging Resources. The APS toolkit contains numerous policies, procedures, forms, and best practices for APS in Wisconsin as supplied by county APS departments statewide. The contents of this toolkit did not originate from DHS and should not be considered “official” DHS forms. The contents are intended to be used and/or modified to meet the needs of an individual county and are by no means meant to be mandatory. This toolkit will be reviewed on a regular basis to ensure the content continues to be relevant.

Please contact DHSAreaAdmin@dhs.wisconsin.gov with comments or questions about the toolkit.
