Support for our members

Our goal is to keep you safe and healthy.

One day, you wake up and realize you aren’t able to do everything you used to. Unfortunately, as we age, our mind and body ages along with us, which can also affect our spirit. We are here to show you that help is available for your mind, body and spirit.

Here are some resources to help you keep doing all the things you love.

Report elder abuse

24-hour hotline: 800.490.8505

Elder abuse can happen whether the person lives in their home or in a care facility such as a nursing facility, personal care home, or hospital. When reporting abuse, you can remain anonymous and have legal protection from retaliation, discrimination and civil or criminal prosecution. Abuse is not only physical, but can also be mental or financial. Common signs and symptoms of abuse include:

  • isolation
  • weight loss
  • bruises or broken bones
  • increased confusion
  • unusual withdrawals from any account
  • signing over one’s home to another

Researching community living

At some point, all older adults may need some type of assistance with their care. Use these resources to get your questions answered and be prepared when that time comes.
