Elder Care

Decision-making around how to care for older adults can be complicated. Conflicts in elder care can make both the elderly and the older adults involved feel overwhelmed, confused, vulnerable and rejected. Fortunately, elder care mediation resolves to provide clarity, self-empowerment and consideration of available options and resources for everyone involved.  Issues in the following areas can be resolved through elder mediation:

  • Guardianship
  • Health and medical care
  • Finances
  • Legal matters
  • Living arrangements
  • Communication issues
  • Family relationships
  • Respite care
  • Support for caregivers
  • Personal maintenance
  • Safety
  • Autonomy and self-determination

Parties involved in these issues can find mediation to be a healthier, constructive avenue in solving contention. Attorneys, medical professionals, social workers, residence staff, relatives and children, spiritual care givers and friends can all find resolution and satisfaction with the help of an elder mediator.
