investigates allegations about the abuse of adults age 60 and older (and of people with disabilities age 18-59).
A case worker will contact the victim and help determine what services are most appropriate to stop the abuse. In some cases, Adult Protective Services may petition the court for guardianship to ensure the abuse victim’s needs are met. Guardianship and nursing home placement are always the last resort. Phone the APS hotline at 1-866-800-1409,
or 1-888-206-1327 (TTY) to make a confidential report.
