Eldercaring coordination is a process for handling high conflict cases involving elders such as guardianships or conservatorships where the elders and their loved ones may have difficulty agreeing to what options are best for the elder or  may disagree as to how to proceed to reach their agreed upon options. The elder and those who care for them may have a history of mediating multiple issues over multiple mediation sessions or the court may have been required to make the decisions for the family multiple times.

If this sounds familiar and the family would like to try eldercaring coordination, please review the option with your attorney or judge.  I would be happy to assist you if the judge in your case refers you to an eldercaring coordinator.

Detailed information regarding the process and training of coordinators can be found under the Blog tab posted February 1, 2023.
