This is my second post and it has to do with trying to work with my siblings. I read someplace that there are mediation services that might help with sibling issues when dealing with elderly parent care. Has anyone had any experience with this? Do you usually include the elderly parents in the discussions? Is it expensive or might there be low cost services available?
I would like to give it a try if my brother and sister would be willing as well but before I approach them I would like to know more about it.
All my kids (and my DIL) are a joy to be around and are so sweet to me and their stepdad. We are expecting our first grandchild in Feb. which makes it even MORE tempting plus the weather is so much better... Oh well no sense in pining for things I know I am not going to do. Besides the grass is greener and all that :)
You might also check with local legal services group for suggestions they might have.
Good luck! I know it is not easy. Make a list of all your concerns, questions and what you want the meeting to accomplish...keep the meeting conversation to what is on your list! This is not the time for personality disputes (right!). Take slow, deep breaths and look everyone in the eye when talking with them.
