Before lawyering up over disputes about estate planning, end-of-life care, or moving Mom into a nursing home, consider the new breed of “elder mediators” who specialize in such conflicts commonly faced by seniors.

But be warned: anyone can legally name themselves an “elder mediator” so determine if they are qualified beforehand.
