Throughout the elder mediation process, many issues may be discussed including:
- Health and Eldercare Decisions
- Family Participation in Care of Elder
- Assisted Living Concerns
- Nursing Home and Home Care Problems
- Guardianships / Conservatorships
- Family Wealth Succession Planning
Families often find themselves in conflict over the care of an elderly parent or family member. The 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 is an excellent method to help families with 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.
