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
Mediators help the disputants 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 this outcome. 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.
Sensitivity to conflicts that arise in family caregiving is just one of the advantages I bring to the mediation. I assist caregivers with resolving their differences over the caregiving situation. Inherent is the hope of salvaging precious family ties which are now strained due to caregiving and the role of caregiver. An important plus is that groundwork is laid for improving the overall relationship as the parties work out their differences with the guidance of a neutral third party who is specialized in Alzheimer’s care, confict and who is a licensed nursing home administrator.
You are not alone. Alzheimer's disease is the leading cause of dementia in the elderly. These cases are expected to double every 20 years. Today, 26.6 million people worldwide suffer Alzheimer's. Scientists predict the numbers in the US will grow to 7.7 million by 2030 and 16 million by 2050.
According to 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.
Approximately 50% will require skilled nursing home care. The medical home concept is a new care option
