New York Elder Abuse Resources


Elder abuse is a general term used to describe harmful acts toward the elderly. Abuse can take many forms and can include physical, psychological or emotional, sexual, and financial. Neglect is also considered a form of abuse and can also include physical, emotional, or financial. An example of neglect includes a caregiver who does not use a senior’s resources to maintain the well-being of the aging adult.

The following links are meant to serve as resources to provide information on elder abuse and preventing elder abuse, not to report incidents of elder abuse. If you suspect abuse or neglect, contact New York State Protective Services for Adults at 1-800-342-3009 (option 6) or visit their website www.ocfs.state.ny.us/main/psa.
