Elder Case Finder

Elder Case Finder

As frontline responders, the SFFD recognizes the important role its paramedics and firefighters play in identifying victims of elder abuse and assuring that appropriate steps are taken to assure the care we give stretches beyond our emergency response. The SFFD HOME Team continues to work closely with the Department of Aging and Adult Services, Adult Protective Services and the SFDPH EMSEOS Section to assure that all EMS responders in San Francisco have the appropriate training and materials to quickly refer patients for follow-up by APS. Anyone concerned about a potential case of elder abuse or neglect should contact Adult Protective Services. Anyone interested in learning more about the SFFD's role in handling cases of elder abuse or neglect can email hometeam.dph@sfdph.org.
