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.

    My aunts sold my grandmother (89) in to a guardianship she didn’t need. My mother (64) was taking care of her for 3 years til her brother passed away last Jan. That’s when the sisters isolated her from the rest of the family and have been exploiting her since. Putting restraining orders on my mom who’s never had anything more than a traffic violation had been arrested twice for (falsely) violating them even after they were thrown out by the judge. We’ve had a crash course in how the system works and it’s dispicable! Now we are fighting to give her back her life and we are going to do everything we can through media family and friends to make it happen. This kind of abuse and exploitation needs to end! And I support all who have the power to bring awareness and make that happen.
