Service Details

Description

Report suspected maltreatment of vulnerable adults to the Minnesota Adult Abuse Reporting Center: (844) 880-1574


A vulnerable adult can be anyone over age 18 who:
* Has a physical, mental or emotional impairment that makes it difficult for the person to care for themselves without help and to protect themselves from maltreatment
* Is in a hospital, nursing home, transitional care unit, assisted living, housing with services, board and care, foster care or other licensed care facility
* Receives services such as home care, day services, personal care assistance or other licensed service


Maltreatment includes:
* Abuse, including physical, emotional and sexual abuse, use of restraints, involuntary seclusion or punishment
* Neglect, including failure to provide necessary food, shelter, clothing, health care or supervision because of neglect by a caregiver or because the vulnerable adult cannot meet their own needs
* Financial exploitation, including theft or withholding of money or property and/or use of money or property not for the vulnerable adult's benefit


Adult Protective Services assess needs and provide emergency and continuing services to safeguard the welfare of vulnerable adults. Examples of adult protection activities include assisting the vulnerable adult to move, apply for social or financial services, or initiate proceedings related to guardianship or conservatorship.


County Adult Protective Services agencies investigate reports of maltreatment of vulnerable adults when the suspect is a family member, friend, or stranger not related to a program or service licensed by the Minnesota Department of Health or the Minnesota Department of Human Services (DHS).
