The Let’s Talk service assists older people and their families to resolve or prevent interpersonal differences and disagreements in ways that improve their relationships and make decisions that protect the interests, rights and safety of the older person and their families.
The Let’s Talk Elder Support and Mediation Service is a service that assists older people and their families 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 the older person and their families.
You can access the service on your own, with your partner, a carer or advocate, as a family, or your children or parent(s) can come by themselves. Attending the Let’s Talk Elder Support and Mediation and Service is voluntary and confidential.
The decisions you make are not legally binding. If you would like to put your arrangements in writing, your practitioner can assist you.
A session will last for a minimum of one hour; however, each situation is unique and we will tailor a solution to fit your circumstances. Where more than one person is involved, the practitioner may also wish to see each person separately. Some issues are resolved in one or two sessions, others may take longer, depending on the complexity of your issues.
