Tribal Resources

This page serves as a place for additional resources that may be of interest to both those receiving services or family members caring for a loved one. Some resources are developed within ALTSA while others are created externally or are links that may take you to a different organization with helpful information. If there is a resource you think would improve the lives of clients or family members who are supporting an aging family member please contact Ann or Marietta to discuss.

Tribal/APS Place mats 

Each year, increasingly more tribal members experience financial exploitation. Adult Protective Services collaborated with tribal members to create an informational place mat for senior meals that  provides information to elders about how to protect themselves.

The place mat is customizable. The image, contact information and text can be altered to meet the specific needs of a tribe. If you have questions or would like to order place mats, please contact  Amanda Williams at
