Report Vulnerable Adult Abuse

Effective July 1, 2019,  Aging and Disability Services Division (ADSD) received legislative authority to receive and investigate reports of abandonment, abuse, exploitation, isolation and neglect for vulnerable adults age 18-59 in addition to persons 60 years and older, collectively referred to as vulnerable adults. The Elder Protective Services (EPS) program is now referred to as Adult Protective Services (APS).

 

To report suspected abandonment, abuse, neglect, exploitation or isolation for vulnerable adults 18 years and older, and/or facility complaints to the Adult Rights Intake unit, please utilize these phone numbers:

  • Las Vegas/Clark County              (702) 486-6930
  • Statewide/All other areas             (888) 729-0571 

If a vulnerable adult is in immediate danger, the local police, sheriff's office or emergency medical service should be contacted. If the person is not in immediate danger, the report should be made via one of the designated phone numbers.

 

Please do not send a report of elder abuse, neglect, exploitation, isolation or abandonment, to the Aging and Disability Services Division email address, as it may not be acted on promptly.
