Elder Abuse

confidential lettersThe OCES Protective Services Program (PS) is here to provide a safe and confidential place to call when an older adult’s health, safety, physical or emotional well-being may be at risk. Our PS staff works with older adults or their designees to prevent, eliminate or remedy situations involving emotional, physical or sexual abuse, neglect by a caregiver, financial exploitation and/or self–neglect.

Older adults who are at risk of harm from others, as well as those whose own behaviors jeopardize their safety, can receive assistance to keep them safe in their own homes. OCES’ staff can advocate for older adults in these situations and provide services and resources to resolve these difficult matters.

If you would like to talk to someone, please call this number: 508-584-1561
