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. 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.
The Long-Term Care Ombudsman program advocates for people who live in licensed facilities. Eligible clients live in Peoria, Tazewell, Marshall, Stark, Woodford, and Fulton Counties. 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.
