In 2010, the Alzheimer Society of Ireland and the Mediation Service launched an elder mediation service to help families experiencing conflict affecting the care of an older person living with dementia.  The purpose was to offer older people with dementia and their families a means of decision-making and conflict resolution that minimises stress, promotes communication and understanding.  The service was launched as a one-year pilot project.  The success of the project was such that Elder Mediation is now a service offered within the Mediation Service.
