Take The Pledge

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.

    If you are concerned about elder abuse my pledge is to inform Kasem Care of NSWhealthy seniors/elderly have pharmaceutical dangerous necrotic agents, negligence necrotic brain injuries, NOT ASSOCIATED WITH JUST FORGETFUL MEMORY DEMENTIA & is associated with(this is important)HEALTHY SENIOR VICTIMS painful historical ongoing/reported/intentionally ignored, body pains/legs/headaches/hi BP, heart palpitations & lack of oxygen complaints associated with necrotic seizures, trembling/tremors, loss of balance & memory loss, IN THAT ORDER OF ABUSE is being maliciously hidden behind Hospital, N/Home, Guardianship Tribunal & Trustee & Guardian dementia diagnosis & P of A forgery accomplices intent on % splitting ill gained rewards & continuing healthy seniors pharmaceutical dangerous agents necrotic injuries to justify increasing symptoms to acquire healthy seniors income/pension, property/houses, life savings & their children’s inheritances /family assets through a series of serious crimes must be stopped especially when identifying healthy seniors series of negligence necrosis injuries/symptoms & stopping their necrotic ongoing poisonings(prosecuting those above would help)see’s seniors necrotic injuries don’t increase, their symptoms subside & they regain their senses /awareness with the help of vitamin E & C which promotes plasma/stromal stem cells to repair damaged tissues & damaged myelin sheaths/axons to promote recovery instead of a homicide death would expose those profiting from this terrible dementia forgery, malicious scam that involves violent crime threats/assaults & forcing money out of families & throwing them out on the street/homeless crimes atrocities.


    Now you know the associated criminalistic facts & i ask Kasem Care for help with this serious matter & to help those seniors as described above because they deserve the chance to be identified, recovered & the right of compensation for not dying a poisoned artificial death in 6 to 12 mths because they can continue living/aware for over 5 to 10 years is very worth while when family/friends can spend that extra time with their loved ones is another VERY IMPORTANT POINT, as everyone would agree.


    How do i know so much & in such detail?


    Been through it/witnessed it myself & other witnesses evidence.


    Contact me & i can show you the evidence or check for yourself first(ask forensics too for assistance)before contacting me & investigate/ask those above for more detailed tests/historical reports of pharmaceutical necrotic dangerous agents errors & you’ll soon understand your being deceived, then threatened legally & violentally by those in trusted H/Care & Legal/civil positions proving they are not trustworthy & are violent criminals.


    Regards


    Mr Silvio Valastro.


    PS; It’s important seniors/the elderly aren’t poison abused & then extorted/profited off behind medical & legal forgered documents especially from those in trusted govt, civil & private positions. Do you hole heartedly agree?

    I value your vision and hope to collaborate with you. I started the care for the elderly in nigeria by setting up free medical care for them, negotiated to start a geriatric hospital and also now raising funds to support the VETERAN HEALTH PLANS. called Senior citizens and retirees health funds.


    I would appreciate a collaboration with your group to further this advocacy for the aged

    I will help in any way I can, I have a dear friend in Washington who is being completely isolated and over medicated in order to gain POA and financial control. This has permenantly damaged her and APS is closing the case. She is like a mother to me and unable to even call me as they have taken her phone. The family has threatened anyone who comes around and they have lied to physicians and deprived her of proper care. Where can one turn?
