Elder Relationship Service
Our Elder Relationship Services provides free counselling or mediation for older people and their families. This service can help to:
- prevent or resolve family conflict.
- have difficult conversations.
- plan for the future (including medical, health, financial or living arrangements).
- resolve differences in ways that improve their relationships.
- make decisions that protect the interests, rights and safety of families.

Everyone gets the opportunity to express their view with the support of an independent practitioner. The Elder Relationship Service is staffed by trained mediators and counsellors with specific skills in delivering services to people experiencing conflict about ageing-related issues.
