Helping Elders Through Mediation

The public is invited to hear a presentation by Carole Bohn and Bob Moore about “Helping Elders on the Cape through Mediation.” The event is scheduled for Wednesday, September 10, at 7 PM, at the Unitarian Universalist Meetinghouse, 840 Sandwich Road, East Falmouth.

Ms. Bohn and Mr. Moore will explain the various kinds of services that their organization, Cape Mediation, is making available through a new Elder Mediation Program to help seniors and their families. They will also be available to answer questions. Issues addressed by these services include making family decisions, arranging responsibilities of family members, determining living arrangements in single or group situations, settling disputes between elders in group living, determining medical and financial needs, caregiving, and driving.  

Carole Bohn is a psychologist with a theology degree who was associate professor of psychology and religion at Boston University’s School of Theology for 30 years. Since retirement, she has lived in Dennis and been active with Cape Mediation for four years, facilitating their participation in BU’s religion and transformation program.


Before retiring to the Cape, Mr. Moore was a corporate attorney in Washington, DC. He is a member of the Board of Cape Mediation and has been active mediating in the Orleans Court on tenant/landlord disputes and instrumental in creating a partnership with the Barnstable Housing Authority for resolving such disputes.

The event is sponsored by UUFF’s Adult Education Committee. Admission is free. The UUFF meetinghouse is accessible for people with disabilities.
