State Elder Abuse Hotlines

(Return to NCCAFV Home Page)



If you suspect elder abuse, neglect, or exploitation, call your state's elder abuse hotline or reporting number. Help is available.

In an emergency call 911 or the local police.

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.

Information and referral is also available from the national Eldercare Locator, a public service of the U.S. Administration on Aging. Call toll-free 1-800-677-1116. This number is available from Monday through Friday 9 AM-8 PM (except U.S. federal holidays).
