Taking care of aging family members is a huge responsibility with many rewards and often many sacrifices. It can be difficult to make decisions for aging parents, especially when there are multiple people involved with creating a unanimous care plan. We at Jones Divorce Mediation recognize the familial struggles that can occur in these situations and want to help you keep your family focused on your goals help you make informed decisions that benefit all parties.
What is Eldercare Mediation?
Eldercare mediation utilizes a neutral third-party to assist families in making decisions for their elders. Often times, family disputes arise when it comes to answering important quality of life questions. The benefits of eldercare mediation are vast and include:
- privacy – mediation can involve as few or many parties as necessary including, parents, grandparents, children or any other parties and there is no need to involve the courts;
- informal – the mediation occurs in a boardroom setting or Zoom and there is no need to go to the courthouse;
- efficiency – family disputes have a way of dragging on as emotional barriers often prevent parties from reaching a resolution. A mediator can assist with this by helping to decide on a clear path forward; and
- control – mediation is 100% voluntary so any parties can choose to end the process at any given time.
How Can A Mediator Help?
A family mediator can assist you with a wide variety of issues including but not limited to living arrangements for aging parents, health and personal care (such as driving ability), the use of medical interventions and which doctors / specialists to use, caregiver responsibilities, financial concerns, personal directives and end of life goals.
