San Bernardino County’s Department of Aging and Adult Services-Public Guardian (DAAS-PG) invites all public and private professionals who support older adults and individuals with disabilities to mark their calendars for the 36th Annual Adult Protective Services (APS) Multi-Disciplinary Team (MDT) Conference on May 22 from 7:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. at the DoubleTree Hotel Ontario Airport in Ontario. Registration for the conference will open in April.

This year’s theme, Aging Equitably by Bridging the Gap, focuses on enabling older adults and individuals with disabilities to reside securely, independently and comfortably within their own home and community, irrespective of age, income, socio-economic status, ethnicity, race, sexual orientation, gender identity, or physical and mental capacity.

“The conference offers a chance to collaborate with professionals from diverse backgrounds, public and private, aiming to enhance the delivery of services benefiting older adults and individuals with disabilities throughout the county,” said Director-Public Guardian Sharon Nevins.

Professionals will gain knowledge and insights on a multitude of topics affecting older adults and individuals with disabilities, such as overcoming disparities to extend life expectancy, improving quality of life over the lifespan and affordable aging-in-place.

Continuing education units (CEUs) for Licensed Clinical Social Workers (LCSW), Licensed Medical and Family Therapists (LMFT), Licensed Educational Psychologists (LEP), and Licensed Professional Clinical Counselors (LPCC) will be announced in the upcoming months.
