If the elder lives in another state, call the protective services agency where the elder lives. In some states you can call a hotline toll-free. Many states also have online directories that list local reporting numbers.

  1. Just one thing: These agencies WILL NOT interfere in a Conservatorship! The only help I found, who WOULD, to some extent, was the Ombudsman, who helped me bring complaints to the Conn. Dept. of Public Health. Most of the other agencies will tell you that the state DPH has the most authority … and it takes months to get a response from them, if any. It doesn’t hurt to call, and if you do, you’re helping the statistics too.

  2. Hello, it really interesting, thanks westportwow.com

    If you are not in a position to help an elder personally, you can volunteer or donate money to the cause of educating people about elder abuse, and you can lobby to strengthen state laws and policing so that elder abuse can be investigated and prosecuted more readily. The life you save down the line may be your own.
