    Elder Affairs Mediators to the Rescue

    A small but growing number of mediators
    (people who help resolve disputes, typically outside a courtroom) now
    specialize in elder affairs. They help families work through concerns—and
    fights—involving caregiving, inheritance, living arrangements, estate planning,
    and related issues.

    Family arguments have a terrible
    way of escalating into something akin to thermal nuclear war. This especially
    is the case when the fight is over an elderly loved one, their future, and
    their well-being.

    A recent article in SmartMoney, titled “When to Call an Elder Mediator,” provides
    some helpful guidance for families working through myriad issues regarding an
    elderly loved one.

    Enter the elder mediator.

    An elder mediator essentially
    allows the family to come together around the advice of a third party who has
    no interests, no psychological baggage, and no need to distrust anyone.
    Sometimes you simply can’t say that of other adult siblings or loved ones (or,
    if we are honest, of ourselves).

    When the end sought by the
    family is the well-being of the elderly loved one, an elder mediator can be
    essential in helping the family work out solutions while preserving family
