Elder Care and the Family System
When again parent(s) begin to rely on their family for more support, conflict can increase as the family dynamics become stressed. Imagine a mobile hanging in balance, when you remove a piece or add a piece it quickly becomes out of balance. As the family system changes and an aging parent depends more on family, imbalance or inequities can create conflict among siblings and their families. Mediation can diffuse conflict among family members and help siblings navigate difficult conversations around the added dimensions of caring for aging parent(s). Elder care mediation can give all the family members, including the aging parent(s) and remote family members a voice to work towards workable solutions.
