If someone makes a false claim to adult protective services,

Customer Question

If someone makes a false claim to adult protective services, the police interviewed the person I was supposed to have abused somehow, but no one contacted me or the assisted living administration where she lives; do I need to contact anyone. I called the police department myself when I found out about this, and the Sergeant who was one of the interviewers told me not to worry. The person who called is an ex-drug addict and neighbor of my friend (an 87 year old with alzheimers). He seems to think I've kidnapped her and put her into a very nice assisted living home. Do I need to do anything else. Her doctor's diagnosed her last month and have also noted that she is incapacitated to handle her own affairs. As I am not a blood relative, I have documented everything I have done for her as to be as transparent as possible.
