Hi and welcome to JA. Ray here to help you today. I would call Adult Protective Services, they may be able to help you file guardianship here.This is 24 hour toll free number.This is self neglect here and they can help you here. If you suspect that a vulnerable adult is the victim of abuse, neglect or exploitation, please contact you local DHS County Office. If it is after regular business hours, please call the Statewide Abuse Hotline at 1-***-***-****.
