A PERSONAL MESSAGE FROM KERRI KASEM

The work of Kasem Cares addresses the experiences of an increasing number of families whose family members need protection from abuse, regardless of their financial status. Increasingly, adult family members around the country need to protect ailing relatives whose lives are being controlled by someone who restricts access to and creates inhumane conditions for a vulnerable adult.

I am speaking out and supporting legislation to stop Elder Abuse in the form of isolation of an ailing parent or loved one. Thousands of families are torn apart everyday due to an abusive caretaker alienating/isolating their spouse, sibling, or patient from their loved ones.

Join us to help protect vulnerable families facing such challenges now and protect your family from such possible abuses in the future.

With love and gratitude,

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.

  • 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.
