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.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart." R. Bove

    Heard you on the morning KLAQ radio station on my way to work. You gave great advise that when I got to the office, I made note to revise my and my husband’s Will to have several executor’s of our estates. I’m truly sorry to hear what you and your siblings went through with your father. You are doing a great deed on behalf of your father, I’m sure he is very proud.

    Yolie
