We Are to Help Those Who Can’t Help Themselves

North Central Health Care helps protect individuals who, due to mental retardation, mental illness, a degenerative brain disorder, or other cognitive disability, are vulnerable and unable to make decisions or advocate for themselves. We conduct screenings to determine the needs and vulnerabilities of adults. Based on our professional observations, we make referrals for evaluations and services.

We can intervene and provide emergency protective services or placement orders, help petition for guardianship and protective placement, and complete necessary court reports and evaluations. We also provide ongoing reviews of protective placements and can assist with locating guardian resources.

If you know of someone in needed of adult protective services or guardianship, call 715.841.5160 or 855.487.3338 (toll-free).
