Mediators & Arbitrators of America’s (“MAA”) Elder and Adult Care Mediation Course is a 2-day intensive course. Elder and adult care mediation is a collaborative problem solving process, facilitated by a trained, neutral third party to assist older adults and their families navigate the challenges of aging. A trained elder care mediator can help elders and their families address issues including health and medical care, end of life care and decisions, how to share family care-giving, care-giving schedules and expenses, living arrangements, property maintenance, finances, family business transactions, guardianship decisions, driving concerns, and probate matters such as wills, estates, trusts, and property distribution. Elder and adult care mediation can enable proactive families to reach quality, respectful discussions that lead to the consideration of emerging opportunities to resolve conflict that potentially could tear them apart financially and emotionally. The objective of this training is to assist mediators who have already completed basic and advanced mediation training and who want to specialize in elder mediation with a strong focus on the ethical issues an advanced mediator must consider in these complex situations.
