Protective services for elders and adults with disabilities
Adult Protective Services (APS) responds to reports of abuse of Alameda County residents age 60 years and older and dependent adults between ages 18-59 who, for mental or physical reasons, cannot protect their rights or carry out typical daily activities.
APS services are provided without regard for income, and acceptance of service is voluntary.
Reports may be made 24 hours a day, 7 days a week by phone, mail, online and fax.
The identity of the individual who reported the abuse to APS is to be kept confidential, even from the victim, unless the reporting party waives confidentiality.
