Help recognizing, dealing with adult abuse

Oak Park Township offers help recognizing and reporting elder abuse and abuse of an adult with a disability, terms used to describe any negligent act that causes harm or serious risk of harm to a vulnerable adult.

Illinois’s Adult Protective Services Program recognizes physical abuse, sexual abuse, emotional abuse, confinement, passive neglect, willful deprivation and financial exploitation. The program applies to individuals 60 or older, or 18 to 59 years old with a disability, who reside in a domestic setting, not in an institution or nursing home.

Anyone suspecting abuse is urged to make a report by calling 708.383.8060 or the Adult Protective Services Hotline 1.866.800.1409.
