Companion Home Care Inc Joins National Adult Protective Services Association (NAPSA)
NAPSA is the only national organization that represents Adult Protective Services programs and the abused, neglected, and exploited elders and adults with disabilities whom they serve.
NAPSA, or the National Adult Protective Services Association, is a national non-profit 501 (c) (3) organization with members in all fifty states.
Formed in 1989, the goal of NAPSA is to provide Adult Protective Services (APS) programs a forum for sharing information, solving problems, and improving the quality of services for victims of elder and vulnerable adult mistreatment.
Its mission is to strengthen the capacity of APS at the national, state, and local levels, to effectively and efficiently recognize, report, and respond to the needs of elders and adults with disabilities who are the victims of abuse, neglect, or exploitation, and to prevent such abuse whenever possible.
Elder abuse is particularly worrisome and widespread problem. According to the World Health Organization, around 1 in 6 people 60 years and older experienced some form of abuse in community settings during the past year.
“I joined NAPSA last year after attending the World Elder Abuse Summit in Washington D.C., which featured speakers from all over the world espousing the need for more protection for the vulnerable elderly. Companion Home Care is committed to combating elder abuse at the local level here in Roanoke, and we are proud to join the fight at the national level through organizations like NAPSA,” said Companion Home Care owner Michelle L. Belton, a Certified Dementia Practitioner (CDP) and Certified Alzheimer Educator (CAEd).
