If you suspect that an elder or dependent adult is the victim of abuse, call:

  • In the community (e.g. in a private home setting) Orange County Adult Protective Services (APS) at 800-451-5155 (24-Hour Hotline)

    In a licensed care facility (i.e. nursing home or board and care facility) Long-Term Care Ombudsman Service 714-479-0107 For more information on the Long-Term Care Ombudsman: http://www.coaoc.org/html/services_ombudsman_description.htm
  • In an emergent situation inform your local police department or dial 911

If you are not a mandated reporter but a relative, neighbor, friend to the victim or observed an elder or dependent adult being abused, only a phone call is necessary. You do not have to fill out any paperwork.
