Protection for Persons in Care

Prevent and report abuse

Call 911 if you or someone you know is being abused and is in immediate danger.

Protecting vulnerable adults in care is our first priority.

The Protection for Persons in Care Act (PPC Act) requires the reporting of abuse, and promotes the prevention of abuse involving adult clients who receive publicly funded care or support services.
