Elder abuse, neglect, and exploitation is a serious problem that has harmful effects on victims. The goal for elder abuse prevention is simple: stop it from happening in the first place. Knowledge about what works to prevent elder abuse is growing. Prevention strategies and practices continue to be developed and evaluated.
Suspected elder and dependent adult abuse should be reported to Adult Protective Services, as well as the Police, if that abuse took place outside a long-term care facility.
Many professionals are required by law to make these reports (including law enforcement, health care, clergy, humane society workers). Anyone else may make a report to APS.
The identity of the reporting party can be kept confidential.
