Adult Protective Services - Quick Facts


Do you know an older person or
someone with a disability
who needs help?

Some people

  • have difficulty making everyday decisions for themselves and are too afraid or embarrassed to ask for help.
  • become the victims of financial exploitation, either by strangers or people they know.
  • do not get the attention they need, or are mistreated by their caregivers.

We can help.


Everyone has the right to be safe and free
from abuse, neglect and exploitation.

If you know someone who might need help, who is at least 60 years old or older, or is at least 18 years old and is incapacitated, then
