Older Adult Protective Services...

Sometimes older persons neglect their own care or they are so forgetful that their nutritional and medical needs become great.  Other times, older persons are neglected or abused by others or they are taken advantage of financially. 

For guidance and assistance call 24 hours a day at 1-800-233-0249. 

All calls are kept confidential in accordance with the law.

Due to the confidential and urgent nature of these situations please refrain from the use of email for reporting cases of abuse.  Instead, please use the phone number provided above that is always available.

Our purpose is to protect older adults and persons with disabilities from abuse, neglect, and exploitation by investigating and providing or arranging services necessary to alleviate or prevent further abuse.
