There are 2 ways to report elder abuse: by calling the Massachusetts Elder Abuse Hotline or by filing a report online. Do not use the online system if:
● This is an emergency or life-threatening situation that must be dealt with immediately.
Call 911 or make a verbal report to the Massachusetts Elder Abuse Hotline at (800) 922-2275.
