Elder mediators facilitate conversations and mediate disagreements to help older adults and their families discuss important aging issues. Dispute resolution professionals are neutral and support all the parties in the discussion. An elder mediator helps spouses, parents, children and grandchildren calm down and listen to each other. We help them identify their critical issues and then offer education on related aging issues and make referrals to services and professionals who can help. My role is to keep the family focused and moving forward to find solutions that meet the needs of the elder(s) at the heart of the controversy.
During the COVID-19 crisis, many of our human interactions have moved on line. Elder mediation has done the same. AIM Mediation now offers on-line mediation so that families may come together, even when they can't be physically in the same space.
