Relationships Australia is launching a new counselling and mediation service to support families who need help negotiating the often complex issues related to aging.

As family members age, conflict can emerge around significant health issues, where older parents will live or how estates will be divided. Elder Relationship Services will help families to have those often difficult conversations and resolve differences in ways that improve relationships.

We also want to support families to plan for future medical, health, financial or living arrangements and make decisions that protect the interests, rights and safety of all family members.

The Elder Relationship Service will run as a pilot for twelve months in Canberra ACT, Wagga Wagga NSW, Kew VIC, Adelaide SA, Launceston TAS and Moreton Bay QLD. People can attend the new service on their own, with their partner or extended family.
