Disagreements and misunderstandings regarding caring for an elderly family member or handling their estate can pull families apart during an already difficult time.
When an important family discussion is needed about a developing major life transition, a trained third-party neutral can facilitate a family meeting to create the space for everyone to be heard. These types of meetings can strengthen family ties and enable all family members to deal with the situation at hand and create a plan to move forward.
Common areas of conflicts are:
- Caregiving and responsibility for aging parents
- Security deposits
- Safety and health concerns
- Residence decisions – including the sale of the family home
- Inheritance disputes
