BILL NUMBER:S7345

TITLE OF BILL:
An act to amend the social services law, in relation to requiring
adult protective services to consult with the local area agency on
aging when the individual requiring services is sixty-two years of age
or older

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL:
To improve access to local services for seniors in need of adult
protective services by requiring adult protective services, when
serving an individual age sixty-two or older, to consult with the
local area agencies on aging regarding programs and services.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:
Amends paragraph (a) of subdivision 2 of section 473 of the Social
Services Law to require adult protective services, when serving
individuals age sixty-two or older, to inform and consult with local
area agencies on aging regarding programs and services available to
help these individuals.

JUSTIFICATION:
Effective delivery of adult protective services requires coordination
and cooperation among a network of service providers. Current law
requires local social services districts to consult with public,
private, and voluntary agencies regarding health, mental health,
aging, and legal services. This bill would ensure that seniors seeking
adult protective services are made aware of all the appropriate, local
services that are available to them by requiring adult protective
services to consult with local area agencies on aging.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
None.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
To be determined.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
This act shall take effect immediately.
