Description

Human Services offers many helpful services for aging adults and their families, including the following: 

Adult Protection Hotline: 303-271-4673

Adult Protection provides assistance to at risk adults age 18 and older who are at risk of abuse, neglect, or exploitation. Effective July 1, 2014, Senate Bill 111 mandates that certain professionals are required by law to report abuse, caretaker neglect and exploitation of at-risk elders directly to local law enforcement. An at-risk elder is any person age 70 and older and reports must be made to law enforcement within 24 hours. Adult protection will work with law enforcement and will continue to receive reports of self neglect for at-risk adults 18 and over.

Protective Services include, but are not limited to:
•  Initiating probate proceedings as per C.R.S. 26-3.1-101 (6)

•  Providing casework, arranging and coordinating services

•  Providing information and referrals to community resources, including public assistance benefits

•  Receiving and investigating reports of abuse, neglect, or exploitation
