An “at risk “ adult is defined as an individual 18 years of age or older who is susceptible to mistreatment or self-neglect because the individual is unable to perform or obtain services necessary for the individual’s health, safety and welfare.

Adult Resources for Care and Help (ARCH)

Adult Resources for Care and Help (ARCH) is a resource center that is available to adults sixty years and older as well as adults eighteen years or older with a disability. ARCH has a “no wrong door” approach for accessing long term care services and community resources. This is accomplished by extensive collaboration with community partners and accepting calls from any source.
