(a)  Prior to Adult Placement Services being terminated, the social worker must review available information and make contacts with significant persons to determine whether services need to be continued, and to reach closure with the client and involved parties. If there are no identifiable client needs that can be addressed by the agency, or those needs are being met by another party, Adult Placement Services may be terminated in accordance with policies codified in 10A NCAC 71R .0600, which is incorporated by reference, including subsequent amendments and editions. Copies of this Rule may be obtained from the Office of Administrative Hearings, 6714 Mail Service Center, Raleigh, NC 27699-6714, (919) 733-2678, at a cost of two dollars and fifty cents ($2.50) for up to ten pages and fifteen cents ($.15) for each additional page at the time of the adoption of this Rule. If Adult Placement Services have been ordered by the court under Adult Protective Services, services will terminate when the order expires.

(b)  Contacts may be made in person, by telephone, or by letter but must allow for sufficient information to be obtained to make a determination about the need for services.

(c)  Documentation must reflect the contacts which were made to make the determination.
