Elder Care

Mediation is a flexible and informal process that many find considerably less stressful than pursuing court-related channels for addressing conflicts relating to family elders like planning care and managing estates. Issues around family business succession planning are also commonly well-served through mediation.

In mediation, all family members involved in the dispute can be a part of creating the solutions. The mediator designs a process to promote healthy, open communication taking into consideration the diverse and sometimes changing needs of the families and their elders.
