My siblings and I disagree on our mom driving. Can mediation help?

This is a common issue in adult family mediation. A typical scenario: My sister wants to take away mom’s car keys. I don’t see how this would work: mom needs to drive, goes to the Senior Center, the doctor and shopping. Mediation is a safe place to discuss safely concern. Each family member has an opportunity to express his/her view of the situation. With the assistance of the mediator, the family brainstorms the options and considers the pros and cons of each. The result may be a family decision to stop mom’s driving and how to do it, to review the question again in a few months, or something else.
