Cathy Cress, author of Handbook of Geriatric Care Management, Third Edition, looks deeper into GCM and the possible need for professional mediation:
Have you ever thrown up your hands with an aging, dysfunctional family and considered a mediator?

These factors include: difficulty of the family, degree of emotional conflict, and complexity of the problem. Below are some early indicators that these factors weigh in favor of mediation in the earliest stage of GCM consultation:
