The Idaho Commission on Aging provides this secure online system for mandated reporters and financial institutions to report suspicions of abuse, neglect, self-neglect, and exploitation of vulnerable adults age 18 years and older. Available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
It may take more than 72 hours to process online reports.
Call 911 or your local law enforcement agency if someone needs emergency assistance or is in a life-threatening situation.
Online reporting is ONLY available to those who are mandated by state law to report abuse, neglect, self-neglect or exploitation of vulnerable adults per Idaho Code 39-5303 and financial institutions. All other reporters must call the local Area Agency on Aging during normal business hours to make a report.
Online reports will be accepted only after all required questions have been answered.
Any physician, nurse, employee of a public or private health facility, or a state licensed or certified residential facility serving vulnerable adults, medical examiner, dentist, osteopath, optometrist, chiropractor, podiatrist, social worker, police officer, pharmacist, physical therapist, or home care worker who has reasonable cause to believe that a vulnerable adult is being or has been abused, neglected or exploited shall immediately report such information. *Nursing Homes/Skilled Nursing Facilities and employees of such facilities shall make reports to the Department of Health and Welfare.
Anonymous reports are not accepted through online reporting.
To ensure confidentiality we have designed our web site so the information you report cannot be saved to your computer. However, you may print a receipt after submission.
This web site's security is sufficient to permit HIPAA-covered entities to file reports of adult abuse, neglect, self-neglect, or exploitation. The reporter will receive a popup confirmation when an online report has been accepted. The reporter will receive no other confirmation or information regarding a report or the outcome of an APS investigation.
Call your local Area Agency on Aging if for any reason you have trouble reporting your concerns on this website.
