No Time to Wait: Eldercaring Coordination for Elders Caught in the Middle of Family Feuds

Linda B Fieldstone

One size doesn’t fit all families when it comes to dispute resolution. Older adults dying while family members argue over their care. Eldercaring coordination was created as a court ordered dispute resolution process developed specifically for families in conflict regarding the care and safety of an aging loved one. Guidelines on Eldercaring Coordination were developed through the collaboration of 20 organizations in the US (including two sections of the ABA) and Canada, as well as 20 statewide entities in Florida convened by the Association for Conflict Resolution (ACR) and the Florida Chapter of the Association of Family and Conciliation Courts (FLAFCC).  

Join Linda Fieldstone, Co-Chair of the Elder Justice Initiative on Eldercaring Coordination, to hear about Florida’s statute, Ohio’s Rule, and South Australia’s pilot on eldercaring coordination, and hear about the benefits of the process for elders, their families, attorneys and guardians, and the court.
