Vulnerable Adults

The Area Agency on Aging & Disabilities of Southwest Washington seeks to keep our most vulnerable adults safe. We work in partnership with other area social service providers to provide support and resources to protect vulnerable adults. We also need the help of concerned community members, like you to help protect family members, neighbors, friends and clients.  Perhaps you have noticed one of the changes below:

  • Changes in the way a person speaks or interacts with others on a daily basis,
  • Confusion, disorientation, forgetfulness, excessive reminiscing, anger or hostility,
  • Financial problems,
  • Isolation,
  • Poor emotional health,
  • Neglect in the area of self-care,
  • Physical challenges, chronic or acute illnesses,
  • A change in a person’s appearance or
  • A family caregiver is stressed and is struggling to provide safe care

If so, there are resources located to the left that can provide assistance or you can contact Clark County Information & Assistance.
