    Volunteer

    Every organization needs volunteers. Friends of Kasem Cares has so much work to do as awareness of elder abuse and neglect issues remains frightfully scarce. Any and all volunteer efforts will be welcome and appreciated. Will you help?

  • signed Take The Pledge via 2015-05-23 13:58:39 -0700
    Thank you so very much in all that you are doing for Elder Abuse. This pledge is in honor of my Grandparents whom we lost to Elder Abuse, my Grandmother in 2006 and Grandfather in 2007. Since that day I have vowed to be the Voice for the the Victims’ and Victims’ of Elder Abuse and bring awareness to this silent horrific crime called Elder Abuse.

    Take The Pledge

    2,440 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.
