Elder Abuse

Although the VCoA is not an investigatory agency, we want to ensure that you are connecting to the most appropriate resources and community supports available to you. To connect with us for more information, please refer to our Contact Us page.

IMPORTANT: Please do not report cases of suspected elder abuse to VCoA. If the situation is serious, threatening, or dangerous, call 911 or the local police for immediate help.

If you suspect elder abuse, neglect, or exploitation, you should report these concerns to the protective services agency where the elder lives. To report suspected adult abuse, neglect, or exploitation in Virginia, call your local departments of social services or the 24-hour, toll-free APS hotline at: (888) 832-3858.
