Adult Protective Services

Through the Area Agency on Aging, our Protective Service Investigators are trained in accordance with Pennsylvania State Law to provide crisis intervention for individuals 60 years of age and older who lack the physical and/or mental capacity to protect themselves from imminent risk such as physical or psychological abuse, caregiver neglect, financial exploitation, abandonment or self-neglect.

If you or someone you know is in a situation that puts an individual at risk of abuse, neglect, exploitation or abandonment, please call the Area Agency on Aging at (412)350-6905. All calls are confidential.
