We provide mediation services to older adults and to their families, friends and supporters.

Going through change can be stressful especially when there are unfamiliar decisions that need to be made. For example, an issue such as an older adult’s change in health may require decisions to be made. Family members, friends and the older adult may have different opinions about the best option. This sometimes causes conflict.

We help to resolve these conflicts by assisting older adults and their families to create effective plans in advance of any change in health or circumstances. Planning in advance can create peace of mind and avoid conflict. In situations where a conflict has already arisen, we help to resolve that conflict.

We chose the name Vista because it symbolises our approach. A vista is “a view of a large number of things that may be possible in the future”.   We help clients see their options and choose a path forward.

In addition to providing mediation services, we provide elder mediation training and provide consultation on program design.
