Neglect of the elderly and people with disabilities wears many faces. So do the forces that help. Sometimes a caring neighbor sees the need and tries to fill it. Or a loving family member attempts to make a positive impact. Unfortunately, an increasing number of vulnerable adults go unnoticed. They may be in pain, lacking strength, confused, without power…alone. If you know an elderly person who is being mistreated, neglected, or harmed in any way, call Adult Protective Services at 1-800-252-5400 day or night.
Texas law requires anyone who suspects adult abuse, neglect, or exploitation to report it to the Texas Abuse Hotline at 1-800-252-5400 or online at www.TxAbuseHotline.org. Callers can remain anonymous. Learn how to recognize adult abuse, neglect, or exploitation at www.Everyonesbusiness.org.
