Orange County Adult Protective Services (APS)
Each California County has an Adult Protective Services (APS) agency to help elder adults (65 years and older), and dependent adults (18-64 who are disabled) when these adults are unable to meet their own needs or are victims of abuse, neglect or exploitation. County APS agencies investigate reports of abuse of elders and dependent adults who live in private homes, apartments, hotels, or hospitals.
To report abuse, call this number 1-833-401-0832 and when prompted enter your 5-digit zip code to be connected to the Adult Protective Services in your county, 7 days a week, 24 hours a day.
