ABSTRACT
The article discusses the failure of Vermont American Psychological Society (APS) to protect an 80 year old man who needed 24-hour care due to frailty caused by dementia, diabetes and depression. The advocacy/watchdog group Disability Rights Vermont alleged that Vermont's APS program also failed to provide adequate protected services and maintain appropriate records. APS claimed it was working to improve its performance by installing a new screening database and holding weekly case conferences.
