Elder Abuse

State Elder Abuse Hotlines
If you suspect elder abuse, neglect, or exploitation, call your state's elder abuse hotline or reporting number. Help is available.
If the elder lives in another state, call the protective services agency where the elder lives. In some states you can call a hotline toll-free. Many states also have online directories that list local reporting numbers.
Information and referral is also available from the national Eldercare Locator, a public service of the U.S. Administration on Aging. Call toll-free 1-800-677-1116. This number is available from Monday through Friday 9 AM-8 PM (except U.S. federal holidays).

National Committee for the Prevention of Elder Abuse
Elder abuse is any form of mistreatment that results in harm or loss to an older person. It is generally divided into the following categories:
•Physical abuse is physical force that results in bodily injury, pain, or impairment. It includes assault, battery, and inappropriate restraint.
•Sexual abuse is non-consensual sexual contact of any kind with an older person.
•Domestic violence is an escalating pattern of violence by an intimate partner where the violence is used to exercise power and control.
•Psychological abuse is the willful infliction of mental or emotional anguish by threat, humiliation, or other verbal or nonverbal conduct.
•Financial abuse is the illegal or improper use of an older person's funds, property, or resources.
•Neglect is the failure of a caregiver to fulfill his or her care giving responsibilities. Self-neglect is failure to provide for one's own essential needs.
