Take The Pledge

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.

    We have a dear friend that his daughter has cut him off from all of his friends. She has told us we can’t write, visit or call him. She had a doctor drug him to get him to leave his home in Searcy, Arkansas to take him to Dallas Texas. Is there anything we can do to help him as a friend?

    I had almost the exact same situation happen to me in Michigan and I was denied every right and my visitation was taken away before he passed away on March 9, 2017. I am so thankful for you and fighting for this cause. I would like to do whatever I can to make sure no one else has to go through this.
