Elder Mediation

“Elder Mediation” is a co-operative process in which a professionally trained elder mediator assists an older person and their families to discuss important topics, work through issues in order to make decisions and reach agreements which have a particular impact on older adults.

Elder mediation is a focused, preventative, respectful process usually involving multiple parties, multiple issues and inter-generational in nature.  

The mediator facilitates the discussions focusing on strengths and empowerment and assists the participants to both listen and be heard in a safe and respectful manner in order to address their stated wishes and concerns.
