In cases of disagreement, families need an impartial mediator.

Mediation

Caring for a loved one can cause stress and lead families into conflicts, especially when time demands and financial burdens are shared disproportionately.

Even when the love and care is equal, family members may not be in agreement regarding the day-to-day needs. This can lead to  disagreements, family arguments, and even threats of legal action. Sadly, it’s the person in need of care who suffers most as the family acts out on their disagreements. Fortunately, LAUREN can help.

Why Choose Us?

Impartial Mediator

When making decisions for a loved one, family members can often have different ideas of what’s best. Knowing the stakes are high, Family Connect Care provides an objective mediator with relevant information and expertise.

National Association of Certified Mediators

LAUREN, Family Connect Memory Care’s owner and founder, is a certified mediator. This means she is a trained expert in helping families like yours resolve conflicts and come to healthy, mutual resolutions.

Voluntary and Confidential

When caring for your family, you are in control, which means mediation services will only take place when those involved agree to the process, and any conversations within these meetings will never be disclosed to anyone outside the mediation process.

What families need in cases of disagreement is an impartial mediator, someone who can – as early in the development of the disagreement – help families reach a resolution to their dispute and arrive at an outcome that all family members can accept without escalating matters more.

LAUREN is a certified mediator through the National Association of Certified Mediators and can help you resolve your dispute, whether it’s associated with the care of an aging loved one or not. She will avoid taking sides, making judgements or giving guidance. She helps improve communication between those involved and builds consensus to reach a settlement agreeable to everyone.

Mediation is both voluntary and confidential. It can only take place when those involved agree to the process, and the conversations will never be disclosed to anyone outside the mediation process.
