The Wake County Human Services' Senior and Adult Services Department offers a variety of home- and community-based programs and services to seniors, adults with disabilities and their families.
Our goal is to maximize self-sufficiency, safety, health and independence so that seniors and adults can remain safely in the community for as long as possible and to maintain the highest quality of life for those who reside in adult and family care homes in Wake County.
The Senior & Adult Services Department provides:
Assessment services for at-risk individuals
Case management services for people receiving Special Assistance/In-Home funds
Monitoring of adult care homes and day care programs
Protective services to disabled adults who are alleged to be abused/neglected/ exploited and in need of protection.
Services are also provided to consumers who have been declared mentally incompetent and who have no one else to assume decision-making responsibility.
