    I just took the #KasemCares pledge. Don't stay silent, join me #‎TakeThePledge #‎StopElderAbuse @KasemCares

    Take The Pledge

    2,391 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.

    Isolation of our mother by a sister that kidnapped our mother into her house and blocked half of the family from getting access and visit our mother.

    There was a co-guardianship and co-trust in place. But the unilateral take over is beyond believe.

    The courts are tied down from stopping this kind of abuse and Isolation.

    Since the demented elder is under their watch in their house no law in the land can stop these wicked people from blocking loved ones to be with our frail elderly parents.

    Legal nightmare. Neutral guardianship are nothing but financial exploitation and cashing in until no more financial gains.

    Our elderly are suffering . This is dishonorable and a plague in our country. Freedom for our elderly is what "Kasem Foundation " is pushing and advocating nationwide.

    Thank you for your advocacy. You have been a source of hope.
