Families are complex entities, and it is not unusual for submerged anger or conflict to boil up in times of stress. Siblings can often find it difficult to work together to help their aging parents, especially when there is unresolved conflict between them. It can feel impossible to think about being together to make decisions regarding the well-being of their parents. Hence the need for Elder Care Mediation!
Our episode on Tuesday will surround the importance of Elder Care Mediation and why having an objective third person involved in the process is beneficial to everyone. Through our conversation with Doris and Bonnie, we will all learn how to 'Be A Healthy Careiver!'
Elder mediation can enhance family communication skills and change the face of health care as we know it. It promotes dignity and respect and enhances the quality of life for all concerned. Elder mediation is a focused, preventative, respectful process – usually multi-party, multi-issue and intergenerational - whereby a trained elder mediator ensures, as much as possible, that all who need to be are present in the mediation. The mediator facilitates discussions focusing on present strengths and assists participants in exploring their stated issues or concerns. This form of mediation often involves the many people related to the issues, such as family members, caregivers, organizations, agencies and/or any named service providers.

Debra Oliver truly exemplifies what it means to be at the frontlines of mediation. She comes from a background that the rest of us read about in novels or see in the movies.

She also lead a San Francisco theater company and hosted a weekly radio show about consciousness-raising.
Debra discovered mediation in 1989 and knew she had found her calling. She handles complex and eventful cases many mediators only dream of - including situations like that portrayed in Robert Redford's film, The Milagro Bean Field War. From mediating with gang membes and police offices to handling explosive divorce cases, her's is an exciting and fulfilling practice.
Listen for her story about how a pecan pie restored justice to a terrorized family. This show promises to surprise and inspire you.

Children cope with many conflcts at school. Teaching our children how to resolve those conflicts is an important and necessary part of the education of our children.
Many schools now have courses that teach how mediation is effective in understanding the issues involved in the conflict from the perspective of both sides with the goal of arriving at a mutual resolution.

Please join us October 13th, 2013 as Marty Prehn, Michigan Elder Advocate, reports on his recent meeting with notable individuals. The meeting was centered around civil rights. Marty was present at this historic meeting to expose the ongoing abuse of our elderly and the subsequent exploitation that it results in.
"October the 5th, 2013 will be one of those historic moments in time that most people will NEVER know about since the main stream media would label it as insignificant since no one was murdered, raped or was a politician involved in public corruption.
However those who were there witnessed the sparks that have started yet another blaze or another phase in the civil rights of ALL Americans to be restored.
I was invited and attended this Benton Harbor Civil Rights Dinner and Conference which allowed many Benton Harbor HEROES to shine along the Benton Harbor Shoreline----at least what shoreline that is left that has not been taken by the Whirlpool Corporation."
