Elder Mediation involves issues related to aging. As a non-adversarial and collaborative process, mediation lends itself well to facilitating, sometimes difficult, discussions between family members, caregivers, extended family, friends and service providers. A mediator is a neutral person who can assist you and your family members to avoid potential conflict through planning or to manage and resolve conflict as it arises. Families are dynamic and complex and often the source of disagreement goes deeper than the presenting issue. Mediation can assist you to identify and resolve the underlying issues that are contributing to the disagreement so you can move forward and collaborate on decisions and planning.
