Elder and Estate Mediation

Care needs arising from the aging of loved ones, or from special needs of adult children, can be uniquely stressful for family members. These stresses and responsibilities – for physical care and sometimes for financial management – can create conflicts and tensions.

Elder and family care mediation offers a supporting, caring, and productive environment for family members to discuss care issues, financial planning concerns, and to plan for the diverse needs of those whom they love.

Likewise, the passing of a loved one can lead to disputes amongst family members related to wills and inheritance, and the implementation of estate plans. Estate mediation offers a respectful environment in which to undertake estate planning with family members before the passing of a loved one, and to resolve disputes arising amongst family members after the passing of a loved one.

The administration of estates can sometimes create conflict within families. This can lead to a breakdown in relationships and expense to the estate. Mediation offers a process to resolve such issues in a facilitative and collaborative way. This will permit the estate to be administered in a timelier, cost efficient manner.
