This program profiles a fictitious Eleanor Stein, who at 80 years old experiences an abrupt decline in health. Eleanor and her family struggle with the resulting challenges until they contact a professional mediator, who helps them navigate through the landscape of personal issues and create a successful action plan. This narrative serves as a backdrop for a training program focusing on mediating complex family issues in eldercare.

Developed by Drs. Harry and Lisa Webne-Behrman, this DVD details the mediation process including: Setting ground rules, active listening, identifying key issues, exploring options and building an action plan.
