The Center for Prevention of Abuse has programs to help seniors and adults with disabilities who live at home or in a licensed care facility.
Adult Protective Services (APS) assists seniors 60 years and older and individuals with disabilities ages 18-59 who are victims of abuse, neglect and/or financial exploitation. Eligible clients live in Peoria, Tazewell, Marshall, Stark, Woodford, and Fulton Counties and reside in their own home/apartment or the home of a caregiver. APS caseworkers, trained by the Illinois Department on Aging, investigate all reports, and provide follow up support services.
The Long Term Care Ombudsman program advocates for people who live in licensed facilities. They investigate and work to resolve complaints made by, or on behalf of, residents. Please call 309-272-2917 for more information.
If you are a senior or an adult with a disability who is being abused, neglected, or financially exploited at home, please call 309-637-3905. If you are a senior or an adult with a disability being abused, neglected, or financially exploited in a long-term care facility such as a nursing home, assisted or supportive living, a developmentally disabled home, etc., please call 309-272-2917.
All victim services are free and confidential.
