Alzheimer Mediation For Dementia Conflict
As we reflect on our tradition, we renewed our commitment to making the world of dementia easier to understand and to cope with.
In fulfilling our mission and advancing the legacy we warmly invite you to join the table.
A mediator is viewed as a servant of the parties.
The parties control the solution to their dispute.
Karen L. Rice, LNHA, Gerontologist
Health, Family & Elder Mediator
The mediator's job is to help the parties find a solution.
In order for a solution to be found, agreed to and remain, parties must have first found procedural, emotional and substantive satisfaction with the mediated negotiations.
All of my efforts are dedicated to such outcome.
The Institute of Medicine states that quality medical care must include a patient-centered approach. They recommend health care be based on “continuous healing relationships, customization based on patient needs, patient values, and shared decision-making."
This is the very core of my mediation practice.
My aim is set on listening to understand
then to focus on very careful construction of customized and continuous healing relationships which are based upon mediated common needs, common values, common goals through shared decision-making.
My approach makes you feel heard.

The predicted cases of Alzheimer's disease,
the leading cause of dementia in the elderly,
are expected to double every 20 years.
Today, 26.6 million people worldwide suffer
Scientists predict the numbers in the US
will grow to 7.7 million by 2030 and
16 million by 2050.
Approximately 50% will require nursing home care.
According to a new report from the Alzheimer's Association, without an effective treatment, the cumulative costs of caring for patients with Alzheimer's disease in the United States could top $20 trillion over the next 40 years.
