Elder mediation is a voluntary process that gives families experiencing conflict the opportunity to make their own arrangements relating to issues including well-being and care of an elderly family member. Conflicts may arise between siblings about their parent’s care, responsibility, estate planning, inheritance or health care choices.
Mediation is a voluntary process that takes place in confidence. Mediation gives families the opportunity to resolve difficult situations by exploring possible solutions, giving the opportunity to develop the best plan for the elder and family.
A number of Family Mediators will specialise in Elder Mediation. To find a local mediation service, or a mediator who serves your area, use Find A Mediator or call the Scottish Mediation Helpline on 0131 556 8118.
