Elder Mediation

Families often find themselves in conflict over the care of an elderly parent. Their parent or other elder family member wishes to remain independent, but the elder’s capability to make decisions and handle the day-to-day tasks of running a household may be impaired. This can place great strain on the parent-child and sibling relationships and elder planning becomes necessary. Elder Mediation helps families have difficult conversations with and about their aging parents or elders. Sometimes the mediation is with the elder and those concerned with their care. Sometimes the mediation involves the caregivers or adult children and other family members. In either circumstance, the mediation can provide a safe setting with a trained neutral mediator serving as facilitator.
