Adult protective services


An important premise in adult protective services is that the patient is mentally competent to act in his or her behalf. The abused or neglected adult should be involved in decisions about her or his care and custody. Though this is a relatively concept it is one that I hope holds the best hope to help women. It is difficult for women who have had very little say in their lives to begin making decision about their future. The low self-esteem that accompanies abuse over time is almost insurmountable to overcome; without some type of support these women are doom to failure.
