Elder Abuse Resources, Abuse reporting.Elderly Neglected Man: Protect seniors physically, emotionally, financially.

 

Ventura County, California Resources

Adult Protective Services is a state-mandated program that helps ensure the safety and well-being of elders and other adults with limited abilities. The staff investigates allegations of abuse and neglect, assesses client needs, and provides short-term case management and linkage to other services.

About Adult Abuse

The signs of abuse can be difficult to recognize. Adult abuse can continue unseen for years or be a sudden attack from a trusted friend, family member or caregiver. Sometimes a client needs help because of self-neglect due to a decline in cognitive capacity. Signs include but are not limited to:

  • Physical injury
  • Sexual abuse
  • Poor nutrition
  • Dehydration
  • Untreated medical conditions
  • Misuse of medicines
  • Abandonment or general neglect

Emotional and financial abuse may offer fewer visual clues, so these forms of abuse often are more difficult to identify. Emotional abuse may be carried out through threats that cause fear, anxiety or depression; isolation may take the form of denying phone calls, visitors, or mail. Financial abuse often involves misused funds, unauthorized account changes and real estate transactions or missing belongings.

What To Do About Suspected Abuse

Anyone who suspects another is being abused should report it. Additionally, anyone who has full or part-time custody or care of an elder or dependent adult is by law a mandated reporter and must immediately report suspected abuse or neglect. Other professionals required to report abuse include social workers, members of the clergy, health care practitioners, advocacy groups, fire department personnel, and staff at financial institutions.
