RFP for Elderly Protective Services in the Baton Rouge Region

Tuesday, June 18, 2013  |  Contact: Sonya Pulliam (225) 342-9522

The purpose of this RFP is to solicit proposals from qualified proposers for the purpose of seeking a social service agency to provide Elderly Protective Services (EPS) services to  vulnerable seniors who are 60+ in the Baton Rouge Region.  This region consists of eleven (11) parishes:   Ascension, East Baton Rouge, East Feliciana, Iberville, Livingston, Pointe Coupee, St. Helena, Tangipahoa, Washington, West Baton Rouge, and West Feliciana. The selected agency will receive reports from family, healthcare providers, and the general public regarding seniors who have been abused, neglected and or exploited. These reports will be investigated, assessed,  and  a  customized  intervention  and  monitoring  plan  will  establish  to resolve or stabilize the situation.   The  EPS Contractor will  also  be  involved  in locating alternative living arrangements if the senior is unable to remain in his/her own home.  The EPS Contractor will work with district attorneys or EPS attorneys when the problem cannot be remedied by extrajudicial means, or when civil court action is needed.
