Every year, thousands of older and dependent adults suffer from abuse, neglect or exploitation. They are living in their own homes, apartments and with their families. Most of them are suffering in silence. And the facts are alarming!

Adult Protective Services (APS) receives calls every day concerning possible abuse of elderly or dependent adults in our community. In 2003, Contra Costa County's APS responded to an average of 152 reports of abuse per month.

Consider these facts:

In Contra Costa County, the fastest growing segment of the population is the 85+ age group. Over the next ten years, the 65+ age group is expected to increase 37%; the 85+ segment is predicted to skyrocket by 55%

Experts estimate, however, that at least four times as many incidents are unreported as those that are reported and substantiated.
