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.

It breaks my heart for all the pain you endure to get something that should not even be a fight. You are inspirational and have helped me keep my head on straight knowing how hard you are working. Thank you from the bottom of my heart." R. Bove

    I don’t want another family to experience what my family has. All the agencies who were supposed to protect my late dad let us down horribly. It is beyond time to expose this elder abuse for the epidemic it is.

    I am a Graduate Degree Student in Gerontology at Fullerton University and Professor Horn Mallers is one of my Professors. I have dedicated my life to serve and empower our Older Adults, this has been easy, since I am one of them. I am very much looking forward to the event, I understand that Professor Horn is able to sponsor me as her student. Thank you for all you do. Sincerely, Elke O’Haire

    Just a note to say that I am a caretaker. I have had report abuse cases. Also close to the Susan Vosilla case. I have seen all the pictures. Was one of those people that couldn’t cash my 5 wks old paychecks, at that bank, which I had my own account in. Will testify in court about it too. If I can help, ask me.
