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.

It breaks my heart for all the pain you endure to get something that should not even be a fight. You are inspirational and have helped me keep my head on straight knowing how hard you are working. Thank you from the bottom of my heart." R. Bove

    I do really care for our elderly, that is by loving them for the rest of my life even when they are no longer with us, but my love for them will last for ever.

    I had the privilege to meet Kerri and team in Arkansas as our bill was introduced into committee and just today was passed. I will continue to assist as it works its way through our legislature. Once it has passed I will continue to assist both in my home state or wherever I am needed to promote the cause of Kasem Cares.

    I am currently living this nightmare by the woman my dad married. She has moved him many times and now I think he is somewhere in FL. She has physically and verbally abused him that many have witnessed. She now has petitioned the probate court for guardianship and has not listed his first family as relatives. It is as if we don’t exist. She has been motivated by greed along with her daughter from another marriage. We are desparate to know where he is.Denise Fucinaro
