Older Adult Protective Services

As many as one in seven seniors nationwide falls victim to elder abuse. 

Lutheran Service Society, through Allegheny County's Protective Services Program, investigates allegations of abuse that threaten the health, safety and welfare of older adults living in northern Allegheny County. The program is administered under the Older Adults Protective Services Act (OAPSA) and provides immediate intervention for seniors at risk of abandonment, neglect, abuse or financial exploitation.
