Conducting investigations and providing services when those adults live in the community. Educating the public about prevention of elder abuse.
These are run by the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) or Texas Department of Aging and Disability Services (DADS). Texas law says anyone who thinks a child, or person 65 years or older, or an adult with disabilities is being abused, neglected, or exploited must report it to DFPS.
