Texas Adult Protective Services (APS)

Each Texas 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.

Call the Texas Abuse Hotline when the situation is urgent. Urgent means someone faces an immediate risk of abuse or neglect that could result in death or serious harm. Call the Texas Abuse Hotline at 1-800-252-5400

Texas Caregiver Resource Centers (CRCs)
Aging & Disability Resource Center

It can be confusing to find help for older adults and people with disabilities. Aging and Disability Resource Centers (ADRCs) are part of the No Wrong Door system, which is designed to streamline public access to long-term services and supports (LTSS). ADRCs serve as a key point of access to person centered LTSS specialized information, referral and assistance and provide one-stop access to information for people who need help finding LTSS.

ADRCs help cut through the confusing maze of funding sources, multiple intake systems, and eligibility processes. ADRCs provide help to people in all 254 counties in the state.
