Mediations are held via online video conferencing at this time.
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 adults involved feel overwhelmed and vulnerable. Fortunately, mediation provides an avenue towards clarity and a consideration of options for everyone involved. The following issues can be addressed:
- Health and medical care
- Legal matters
- Living arrangements
- Communication issues
- Family relationships
- Respite care
- Support for caregivers
- Personal maintenance
- Safety, Autonomy and Self-determination
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.
Business and Employment
Conflicts in the workplace and in business can produce an incredible amount of stress and tension impacting well-being, health and peace of mind. By facilitating effective communication, the key to resolution, many issues can be resolved including sexual harassment, discrimination, employee grievances, workplace bullying, wrongdoing, financial losses, contract formation and partnership, ownership and family business disputes.
Family and Divorce
Litigation is incredibly taxing and stressful on families as well as expensive and time consuming. Divorce attorneys may also have trouble getting past contentious issues in the process because they are not practiced in the art of compromise. Family mediators can fortunately help at any time, even before the divorce process starts. Personal desires can be expressed and assimilated into the final agreement as opposed to the divorce litigation process, where courts only have a handful of outcomes that can be granted. The issues addressed include:
- Property and debt distribution
- Alimony and spousal support
- Child support, custody and schedules
- Parenting plans and coordination
- Health care and insurance
