Eldercaring Coordination Training @ OC Human Relations Offices
Feb 19 @ 8:00 am – Feb 21 @ 4:00 pm

This practical training focuses on the skills required to be an eldercaring coordinator, a conflict resolution specialist in the area of eldercare. The training will build on family and elder mediation foundations to explain how the eldercaring coordinator uses mediation, problem-solving skills, education, community resources, and the limited authority granted by the court to address aggravated situations, frequently in the context of family disputes. The training will address the effects of high conflict, litigious, and vindictive behaviors on the elder as well as family members and other stakeholders, and how to manage these behaviors within the family unit. It will also cover exploitation, neglect and abuse of elders, domestic violence, substance abuse, as well as cognition issues in the elderly.
