    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?

    Take The Pledge

    2,442 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.

    I would like help knowing if I should keep investigating what happened to my father and int urn us. He suffered from dementia, and passed on 10/31/2013. I am not very good at articulating what i need to get through. So here goes. My Dad started showing signs of Altimerz I cant pinpoint when. It was in 2012, thats when he was diagnosed. By 2013 he had dementia, really bad. I was doing all I could to help care for him. Thats not true, hind sight I would have moved in to take care of him. I did go several times a week to cook clean and visit. I ended up loosing my job at Trader Joes due to a break down when I went to my car and couldnt stop crying, and just left.
    We started advocating for inhome care. His Dr. Called his wife and buisness partners and told them we were wanting a conservitorship.
    On Sept 4, 2013 My step mother had a revokable trust and power of attorney drawn up signed. This trust was drawn up by lawyers of the Buisness he owned 225000 shares of. The owner was there for the drafting and signing.
    My step mother did revoke the trust in 1/14. My sister asked for a copy in 2015 i believe, and was sent the old one, not the revised which cut us out.
    In July 2017 my step-mother passed. Aug 2017, we received the trust that cut us out and left all to her children.
    We file suit against my step sister, and much to my dismay settled. All of my siblings and neice and nephews just wanted it over and i lost in the vote.
    I am having a really hard time letting it go. I just cant. Im so angry at his buisness partners who had known him for 30 years, and he considered friends, also,more so his wife who died and never was able to confront her on what she did.
    There is so much I am leaving out, I know it. I was in a really severe depression, apparently I still must be. I just cant stop investigating.
    I just need someone to look over documents, depositions, and other info I haveand tell me I am not crazy,pursue it or that I am crazy and to just STOP!
    I realize I am not making a good impression, and sounds like its all about money.It is not, buts thats the only thing left to fight for.
    I would give anything to have just one more day with my Dad. I feel incredibly guilty that we didnt fight harder for the care he needed, he died all alone in a home, while I was out on Halloween. She had put him in a home shortly after the signing. To give an example of how bad she was…. My sister passed 11/2011. My mother is a Korean War Vet, so we were able to bury her at skylawn, but a double plot had to be purchased to do so.Which my father did, for Jeanne and someday my mom.
    My mom and Dad have a CRAZY history. My Dad was sent away when he was 15 to the seminary due to depression. He became a priest. My mother became a nun after serving in the Korean War because she was gay. Her bother, Uncle, Father Tom refered my mom to my Dad for counciling for her homosexuality.
    My Mom got pregnant with my oldest siser, fled to Ca. my dad found out, followed her. They got married went on to have 4 more of us, married for 17 years, until my mom came out around 1975, I think. My Dad remarried within months. It was icky for years between them. Finally, they were cool. Would talk and laugh together at family gatherings.
    When my sister passed it was unbearable for both.


    Ya know what Im Just gonna stop here. Im rambling. Sorry. So yeah, just wanted help on getting legal advise on some stock shares owned by my father, that wer sold by his wife because the company lawyers set it up, (all involved were share holders and all knew he was not capable of signing a trust or power of attorney.
