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.

"Without stimulation and love, people die." THANKS for pointing out that isolation is elder abuse." S. White

"I can't thank you enough for starting this conversation. Your dad would be so proud. He is smiling watching you change such an important part of wishes that I am sure were already planned. 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

"You are amazing! Keep up the fight for all those that can't." S. Benton

    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.

    while stuck in traffic and checking the radio for traffic news, I caught Kerri Kasem’s interview on 850 KOA last month. I was horrified by what had happened to Casey, and the kids, and cried the rest of the way home as I listened to the interview. Horrific and heartbreaking.

    I take this pledge for every member of my immediate family and everyone else out there. All of whom deserves an elder life free of any form of abuse …a quality of life filled with nothing short of a complete dignity, full of respect and safety.

    My Father was a Veteran of of Our Country, and in His time of Weakness, He was Vicitmized From a Women that lived with him and Her circle of attorneys who changed out his will several times to make sure she cut out his only Son who had Disabilities and family, and stated its all Iron Clad now theres nothing you can do about it,as well as the money taking all family airlooms and pictures belonging too his family and myself, It is well known what this women has down up to and including hiding/rejecting health care and convincing him to just die in a hospice room, and taking away his medicines and treatment so he would surely die. Not to mention the bed sores and mistreatment of taking food away from him so he had no nutrition/Who does stuff like that/These are people with no Souls who do not care what happens to them, Just making victims makes them happy. God help these people when the Lord our God Returns Because forgiveness does not cover things of this magnitude, Your not going to get in the Peary Gates. Please help Kerri in her cause and she is a great honest person who had the love of her life taken away, and we must make these vile people pay back what was not theres in the first place. thanks Please help us.

    I am so very thankful a d stand behind all you are doing for so many. It is also a problem with all the above mentioned things happening to the mentally challenged. I have an elderly mom and mentally challenged brother both under the control of and not allowed to see me at all…for about six years now in California.

    People Matter~ and I thank you for being a voice for all these beautiful people who deserve Life and happiness to the fullest.

    I pray for the day I can be reunited.

    Thank you❤

    I will take the pledge!! I stand behind Kerri and Kasem Cares 100%. I will help in every way. Social media, out on the street…

    I’m lucky with the passing of my father. We were all around him when he passed. That would make both my dad, and us feel better to be there at the end.

    Now just think if that wouldn’t have happened! Someone keeping you from seeing your loved one…and for that loved one to feel lonely, and not see their family before they pass. That would be beyond tragic!! It happens…we must stop this and support Kasem Cares and End Elderly Abuse!!
