Contra Costa County Adult Protective Services Hotline
Adult Protective Services (APS) responds to confidential reports from anyone who suspects that an elderly person or an adult with a disability (dependent adult) who lives in Contra Costa County is being abused or neglected or is self-neglecting. Our 24-hour hotline is staffed by social workers who respond to these calls and will walk the caller through a series of questions to determine if a situation requires APS intervention. When a case is opened in APS, an APS social worker will be assigned to the case and will go out to the home of the alleged victim to determine what services, if any, are needed.
Anyone interested in obtaining more information or who wishes to report adult or elder abuse should call 24 hours a day:

Seniors need affordable transportation options
Affordable senior transportation is essential for maintaining independence and health. Without a reliable way to get to doctor’s appointments or buy food and household supplies, seniors can’t realistically remain in their homes as they age. Social isolation is another big problem for seniors who don’t drive. It causes poorer quality of life and contributes to earlier death. Having access to affordable transportation keeps older adults connected with family, friends, and their community.
To keep seniors healthy and active, we’ve rounded up 6 local transportation options that help seniors get around. View the list HERE.

In this time of separation, Well Connected and Well Connected Español are here for you—to provide laughs, intellectual stimulation, inspiration, conversation, and more, all via groups you can join from home, by phone, or online at no cost to you.
Whether you like art or zoology, music or meditation, there is a program for you. Each Well Connected session offers groups and classes on a wide range of topics. You’re sure to find one that interests you. And Well Connected meets 365 days a year, so there’s always a chance to connect.
How does it work?
Well Connected members call in via a toll-free number at a set time each week, with some groups also offering the option to connect via computer, tablet, or mobile device. Most groups last 30 minutes to an hour with around 12 participants. Newcomers are always welcome! If you don’t feel like talking at first, you’re welcome to just listen as long as you’ve let the group know you’re there.
