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?Become a volunteer
Janine Hasselbring signed Take The Pledge 2017-12-22 14:36:24 -0800My father was a victim of caregiver abuse AND a VP of a prominent bank, who both allegedly conspired to take all his money and belongings. He almost died. The family was not in his life at the time. Upon my “knock on the door” at the urge of family friend, I slowly uncovered the “disaster” at hand. APS failed him. Deputy District Atty failed him, Police failed him. FBI failed him. I have a story also, log books of 5 years of drama. I was not able to get anyone to listen to me. I am glad you were HEARD! Congrats and I am sure your Bill will help elders. PS: I am happy to share my experience in hopes it will help other “broken families” to assist their elder from being hurt, tortured and worse. ~ Janine2,434 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.
