Remember: Most cases of elder abuse go undetected. Don’t assume that someone has already reported a suspicious situation. To report suspected abuse in the community, contact Adult Protective Services (APS). If you or someone you know is in a life threatening situation or immediate danger, contact 911 or the local police or sheriff.
