OLTL Service Coordinators and Direct Service Providers are required to participate in trainings mandated by OLTL. As entities providing services and supports to Home and Community-Based Services waiver participants, protecting the health and welfare of participants is your responsibility. In addition, you are required by two state laws to report suspected abuse, neglect, exploitation or abandonment. The Adult Protective Services Act covers people with disabilities between the ages 18 and 59; the Older Adult Protective Services Act covers adults over the age of 60.
This training is required regardless of whether or not an employee has direct contact with participants. Please ensure that you maintain documentation of employee participation in these trainings. This can be done either by using a sign-in sheet at a group viewing or by maintaining written statements by each employee attesting that they took the training.
