Elder Mediator New Idea

Say a parent has Alzheimer’s. You and your siblings aren’t talking. Your kids are too busy to help out.

All the caregiving is left to you. What to do?

Hire an elder mediator.

A story on huffingtonpost.com says this is a practice that is going to gain in popularity — a staple in age-related care.

The mediator provides an independent, objective view to help resolve the family disputes when it comes to caring for the aging parent.

They also bring together everyone who has a stake in the parent’s care and outcome.

The idea is to improve communication, help divide responsibilities and get the best possible care for the parent.

Elder mediators are more common in Canada than here, but that may change.
