Renda Barbieri-Snyder signed Take The Pledge 2019-02-25 10:40:56 -0800I have for the last 7 yrs struggled as a daughter to see my father that my dads 3rd wife and my own sister has kept me from only seeing my father 3 to 5 times each year. I have never been able to celebrate privately my own birthday, nor fathers day nor my own fathers birthday. I have been kept from every Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays because they BULLY ME!! My sister and dads 3rd wife are jealous and very insecure of me because I speak my mind and also keep very good records, text messages, photos and videos of how I am treated trying to visit and see my father who has dementia. My situation is a MIRROR of yours and your siblings. so very sad.2,403 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.
