Our Mission

The mission of Kasem Cares and the Kasem Coalition is to eliminate all forms of elder abuse, including isolation through education and awareness, support of social change, and community service programs. We are dedicated to fighting elder abuse and protecting the integrity of the family unit through advocacy, and seek to empower and unify individuals and organizations in having a voice to speak up against violence against seniors to help the aging population maintain their independence and dignity.

    Take The Pledge

    2,280 PLEDGES
    5,000 pledges

    Stop the Silence. Promote Awareness. Raise your Voice.

    • 1 to 2 million Americans age 65+ report having been abused by a loved one or someone they depend on for care.
    • Only 1 in 14 incidents of elder abuse are ever reported to authorities.
    • Only 1 in 25 cases of financial exploitation are ever reported, meaning there may be at least 5 million financial abuse victims each year.

    You can do your part to end the silent epidemic of elder abuse by taking the pledge to stand up against elder abuse. There are 10,000 people who are turning 65 each and every day (Pew Research Center), and we are rapidly approaching a time where nearly 50% of the population will be 65 or older. Together, we can end the silence of elder abuse by standing united and raising our voices against this growing problem. 

    Show your support in this movement, by pledging to end the silence, raising awareness in your community, and speaking up against elder abuse.

    A Personal Message From Carrie Jones

    By Carrie Jones Sadly my great uncle, Ray Edwards, suffered Elder Abuse not only at the hands of his wife, but also at an assisted living facility (ALF).  While Ray was at a skilled nursing facility, and I had power of attorney, my family and I started researching a permanent residence for him.  I am just a young girl and had no previous knowledge of what to do or where to look for help.  My mother and her sister flew to California to help me.  We narrowed our search to a beautiful facility in Pasadena, CA.  The facility rolled out the red carpet for us.  They took us to a private room, offered us coffee, tea, sparkling water.  They began to tell us everything that they could offer to my uncle.  3 meals a day in an immaculate dining room, snacks in between meals, bathing once a day, laundry once a week, special attention to his dietary needs.  They told us they would get him involved in various activities.  They even had me fill out a questionnaire regarding his interests.  They said that he could garden, go out on group outings, play games, woodworking.  We were sold!!  Almost $5000 a month, however we still had to cover expenses.
