Service Description

The public and service providers can report possible abuse, neglect or self-neglect and protects and assists vulnerable adults who:
  • May be in immediate and significant danger, and do not understand the danger they are in
  • Do not have the physical ability to get out of a dangerous situation
  • Are unable to protect themselves because of physical or cognitive limitations
