End-of-life decisions

Mediation can result in agreement about what care is appropriate. This may be used even when there are advance directives, but is particularly useful when the family member has not expressed his or her wishes in writing.

Healthcare professionals, such as the parent's primary care provider or a geriatric case manager, can supply information that helps the family in decision-making.

Reaching an agreement on end-of-life decisions is important for future family relationships.
