Use a qualified mediator

Before hiring an elder mediator, experts say, it's important to check a mediator's training and his or her experience handling elder-care cases. Here are some places to find mediators or to learn about the process:


l The Center for Social Gerontology:

l National Association for Community Mediation:

l National Eldercare Mediator Network:
