Elder Mediation is a process and forum designed to provide for family decision-making concerning the interests of a senior family member. Like all other mediation proceedings, Elder Mediation is private, confidential and voluntary for the participants. As the senior members of the Baby Boomer generation move out of the workforce in greater and greater numbers each day, the United States simultaneously experiences the largest transfer of wealth in its history. These phenomena jointly and uniquely place trying and often unexpected demands on the adult children and other family members of an elder parent or relative.

This four-day, immersive and interactive training introduces the mediator to the many facets of elder needs and the challenges they present to their caregivers – often an adult child or children.
