Elder Care

Decision-making around how to care for older adults can be complicated and conflicts during the course of an elder’s care can make both the elder and the other adults involved feel overwhelmed, confused and vulnerable. Fortunately, mediation provides an avenue towards clarity, self-empowerment and consideration of options and resources for everyone involved.  The following issues 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

Everyone can find mediation to be a healthier, constructive avenue in solving disagreements. 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 a mediator.
