DETROIT – The daughter of the legendary radio-super icon Casey Kasem wrapped up a tour in Michigan where she spoke to courts and lawmakers about elder-care and the need for reform when it comes to the powers of court-appointed guardians and conservators.
Kerri Kasem is on a mission. The daughter of the Michigan native and broadcast icon visited lawmakers Thursday to ask them to do more for vulnerable elders.
Her very public battle pit family against step-family when Casey Kasem’s care was taken over by his second wife, Jean Kasem. When Casey Kasem passed away, the family discourse erupted publicly and painfully.
Karri Kasem’s nonprofit, Kasem Cares, put together a digital toolkit families can use to navigate issues of elder conservatorship and elder-abuse.
