Elderly Man:  Protect seniors physically, emotionally, financially. 

Marin County, California Resources

The Division of Aging and Adult Services administers Adult Protective Services (APS). Anyone aged 18 to 64 who, because of their mental or physical disability is unable to effectively protect themselves against abuse or neglect, or anyone age of 65 or older, who is suspected of being abused or neglected, is eligible for Adult Protective Services without regard to income. If you suspect that an elderly or dependent adult is being abused or neglected, call Marin County Adult Protective Services, 24 hours/day. All calls are handled confidentially. If a request for Adult Protective Services is considered inappropriate, or if the victim refuses services, the intake social worker can provide consultation, information and referral to the caller. Adult Protective Services must keep confidential the name of the person who reported the suspicions.

Adult Protective Services social workers investigate and seek to correct situations of abuse and neglect. The social worker will offer the older or dependent adult a plan of services, using the least restrictive method of intervention. With the goal of enabling the person to live as safely and independently as possible, the Adult Protective Services social worker will coordinate services with available family, supportive friends and community resources.

If you suspect abuse in a long-term care facility, contact the Marin County Long-Term Care Ombudsman at 473-7446.
