Report Abuse, Neglect or Exploitation
Blue Skies Home Care LLC staff and CDS attendants are mandated reporters of abuse, neglect or exploitation of people that are elderly or have disabilities.
Contact The Elder Abuse Hotline in Missouri at (800) 392-0210
Missouri’s Adult Abuse and Neglect Hotline responds to reports of abuse, bullying, neglect, and financial exploitation. If you suspect someone is being abused, bullied, neglected, or exploited, then call the hotline at 1-800-392-0210. The hotline operates 365 days per year from 7 a.m. to 12 a.m. People who are deaf or hard of hearing may utilize Relay Missouri by calling 1-800-735-2466. Due to the possible need for mandated reporters to report a concern to the Central Registry Unit (CRU) during the hours of 12:00 a.m. and 7:00 a.m. (when the hotline is not in operation), Online Reporting is available for use.
