AIM Aging Issues Mediation

So What Is Elder Mediation?

Elder mediators facilitate conversations and mediate disagreements to help older adults and their families discuss important aging issues.  Our dispute resolution professionals are neutral and support all the parties in the discussion.   We help spouses, parents, children and grandchildren calm down and listen to each other.  We help them identify their critical issues and we provide education on aging issues and make referrals to services and professionals who can help.   We keep the family focused and moving forward to find solutions that meet the needs of the elder(s) at the heart of the controversy.
