Elder and Family Mediation
Children tend to ignore the responsibility of taking their elder parents, which may make the parents suffer from issues such as lack of basic needs. Such cases may come along with disagreements between the siblings when arguing on who top take the responsibility. Elder mediation will solve these disputes and create a balanced and safe conversation.
The elder must be included.
The elder participation during elder mediation is very crucial. The elder can participate in person or through a representative who will have a voice in matters affecting his/her life. This will ensure that the dignity of the elder is upheld to the fullest. Apart from the elder, other individuals who may have a voice in decisions are always invited to ensure that a mutual agreement is reached. the mediation seeks to create a neutral environment where everyone is fully heard, and appropriate solutions are designed.
