State Elder Abuse Hotlines – National Center on Elder Abuse (NCEA)

Across the country help is available for vulnerable elders or adults who may be in abusive situations.

If the individual you are concerned about lives in the community, call the number listed in the column below headed Domestic Elder Abuse. If you suspect elder abuse or neglect in a nursing home or other formal care setting, call the number listed in the column headed Institutional (in some cases the number is the same).


If someone you care about is in imminent danger, call 911, police, or hospital emergency NOW.

Out of State Calls

If your concern is for someone who lives in another state, check to see if there is a dedicated toll-free number for out of state calls. Some states have toll-free lines that let you call from anywhere in the country. If the number is for in-state calls only, call the Eldercare Locator at 1 (800) 677-1116. The people who staff the locator can help you to find assistance.

All these hotlines are free and anonymous.
