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.

"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

    Charlie Turner I’m going through the same thing with my Dad’s wife. My Dad is at end of life with cancer. She has disconnected his phone and has him “hidden” somewhere to where we are unable to find him. I want to help fight for my Dad and other’s like him. How can I help? What can I do?

    My step mother is abusing my father who has Alzheimer’s. She has moved him from facility to facility and wouldn’t tell me where he was for 2 months! When I finally found out where he was, she had the doctor’s sedate him to the point that he can’t even open his eyes! Now she says Hospice will only allow visitors for 5-10 minutes. I live 3 hours away. She has done everything she can to alienate him from everyone but her. It is frustrating and very heart breaking! I was told by Hospice that I have no legal rights unless I take her to court. He may pass before I can get anything done. I appreciate the work Kasem Cares is doing to STOP the abuse!

    Please continue to fight for our elders! They are our true National Treasures. I took the #KasemCares pledge in honor of all those who silently suffered years of emotional, physical, financial and mental abuse. Thank you Kelly Rooney and Kerri Kasem for speaking out!

    We have a dear friend that his daughter has cut him off from all of his friends. She has told us we can’t write, visit or call him. She had a doctor drug him to get him to leave his home in Searcy, Arkansas to take him to Dallas Texas. Is there anything we can do to help him as a friend?

    I had almost the exact same situation happen to me in Michigan and I was denied every right and my visitation was taken away before he passed away on March 9, 2017. I am so thankful for you and fighting for this cause. I would like to do whatever I can to make sure no one else has to go through this.
