Elder Abuse
Elder abuse is a term referring to any knowing, intentional, or negligent act by a caregiver or any other person that causes harm or a serious risk of harm to a vulnerable adult. Abuse can take many forms, including physical abuse, emotional abuse, sexual abuse, exploitation, neglect or abandonment.

The Adult Protection Law requires any person who has a reason to believe that an elderly or incapacitated adult has been subjected to abuse, neglect, exploitation or self-neglect to make a report immediately to Bureau of Elderly & Adult Services (BEAS) at 1-800-949-0470.
