If an adult is in immediate, life-threatening danger, call 911. If you suspect abuse, neglect or exploitation contact DHSS. DHSS investigates abuse, neglect, and exploitation of seniors and disabled adults. Abuse may occur in the community or in long-term care facilities. These vulnerable adults are unable to protect their own interests or meet their essential care needs.
