Older Adults Protective Services
The purpose of this service is to assure that Pennsylvanians 60 years of age of older who are unable to protect themselves and who are at risk of abuse, neglect, exploitation or abandonment have access to services to protect their health, safety and welfare.
An older adult, or any person who has reasonable cause to believe that an older adult needs Protective Services, may anonymously report this need to the Dauphin County Area Agency on Aging. The Agency is able to accept calls 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
