Family members sometimes have different views about the best form of elder care for their parents or other loved ones. We mediate family differences with the goal of helping your family find solutions that will both benefit your loved ones and increase family solidarity. Our social worker is available to participate in these mediation sessions.

If selling or leasing your loved ones’ home is an option you want to pursue, we can suggest skilled and responsive realtors whom we know and can either sell or lease the home at a fair price as quickly as market conditions allow.
Should investment or financial advice be needed, we can suggest the services of established and reputable national financial firms who are known to us for their excellent service and reasonable fees.
