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

    All I can say is this goes unreported for many reasons, and to many more families than one could imagine. This law being proposed surely should help. Since my family member was locked up and isolated from the rest of her loved ones, I was able to start with the Ombudsman. They were extremely helpful, and pointed me in the right direction.

    I am a survivor of dependent adult abuse. I want to do everything I can to help protect seniors and people with disabilities from being victimized. It needs to stop!
