1. How it Works
If you have a mental and/or physical disability that makes it hard for you to live on your own and manage your affairs, APS can help. APS’s caseworkers make home visits, help you apply for benefits and services such as managing your money and healthcare, and investigate reports of abuse.
- New Yorkers over 18 can get help regardless their income
- Referrals can be made online, by email, or by phone (Monday – Friday, 9:00 a.m – 5:00 p.m)
- Referrals received after 5:00pm or during the weekend will be processed the next business day
- Call 911 if there is an emergency or life threatening situation and a person needs immediate help
