Adult Protective Services (APS), a division of the WV Department of Health and Human Resources (WVDHHR), provides investigation, assessment, and time-limited case management services intended to protect incapacitated adults from abuse and neglect. Anyone who has reason to suspect abuse, neglect, or financial exploitation of an incapacitated adult can make a report to APS by calling the abuse hotline at 1-800-352-6513.
Abuse, neglect, and financial exploitation are all crimes. You can report these crimes to local or state law enforcement for investigation.
