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.
THERE IS NO LAW THAT ALLOWS A JUDGE TO JUST RULE ON VISITATION! We at Kasem Cares aim to change this! Iowa is the first state to pass the VISITATION BILL! We have 49 more states to go. We believe Texas will be next!
We can't do this without your help. There are so many adult children across the US that are not afforded the right to to visit an ailing parent because the spouse is opposed.
The Kasem Cares Foundation isn’t just limited to the experience of a daughter of celebrity father Casey Kasem; rather, this is the experience so many of us across this country face with an ailing parent and a step-parent placing restrictions and inhumane conditions upon the relationship between an adult child and his/her ailing parent.
As an entertainer and the daughter of a reknowned celebrity, Kerri Kasem has lived more of her life in the spotlight than most of us. Unfortunately, circumstances put her private and very personal family tragedy on the front pages of the news. Her legal battle regarding the visitation and medical care of her father, radio icon, Casey Kasem, has brought awareness and attention to a cause that many of us may face one day, in today’s world of blended families. Kerri is actively involved in the elder abuse prevention community.
With this foundation comes the reassurance and promise from us to dedicate our time and determination to pass a law in the state of California and well onto other states in America giving legal rights to adult children where none exist thus far in the courts.
The foundation encompasses a group of passionate family system thinking minds looking to protect, preserve, and support all adult children’s rights to visitation when your parent is not able to speak up, pick up the phone for help or you are faced with a situation that impedes the once sacred bond between parent and adult child!
This is a foundation for those who want to uphold family values and integrity. The future is brighter because with the visitation law passed, and where necessary, with the prevention of elder abuse, adult children will be guaranteed access to their ailing parent absent the necessity of a long, legal battle.
The Kasem Cares Foundation is about protecting the rights of families and about preserving the relationship between an adult child and an ailing parent absent unnecessary and illegal roadblocks.
