Eldercare Mediation is a specialty focus of K.T. Beck Enterprises. Eldercare Mediation is working with families who are navigating the often contentious decisions related to the aging process. The goal is to help family units develop stronger methods of communication and understanding of how the older adult wants to live out their life, making critical decisions in the best way possible to reflect that older adults' wishes.
Mediation uses tools and strategies to improve communication and resolve conflict between individuals and groups.
The goal is to guide participants to develop workable, forward-thinking plans, ensuring that actions taken will bring about the desired results of the organization or family involved.
There are times where an objective, experienced and neutral third-party is needed to provide mentoring, strategic planning, conflict resolution and coaching.
Ms. Kauth provides personalized, in-depth assistance to sort through the many issues that can arise in both the family and business realms.
Backed by a full understanding of our organization’s mission, Kathleen quickly drilled down to the core issues that were preventing our department from operating at full force. The result, today, is a restructured division that works more efficiently, more harmoniously and with stronger lines of communication.
Having Kathleen as an outside, objective mediator brought us together to work past emotions and “how things have always been done” to clearly define goals and expectations, and move forward in a productive way. Even now, more than a year later, the mediation established a reference point that we return to, highlighting accountability and a foundation of trust among our team.
Kathleen’s counsel helped me, as a manager, further develop my skills in navigating the tough conversations and working toward optimal resolutions.
Kathleen embodies the qualities of what it means to be an effective executive coach by sharing helpful concepts and encouraging appropriate rigor to organize my thinking, visioning, and planning.
She's challenged me to expand my learning beyond my level of competence and has built my skills and capacity to manage people, projects, and business.
She communicates a clear strategic plan, then checks on my progress. Most of all, she actively listens and cares about me as an individual. Kathleen balances coaching with heart and backbone to engage clients to be a better version of themselves.
I contacted Kathleen to help resolve conflict with my siblings regarding the care of our mother. Kathleen has provided compassionate and objective guidance as we navigate the emotional and practical aspects of Mom’s care.
Kathleen’s insights and expertise have enabled more constructive dialog among us and demonstrated the value of effective communication. She has equipped us with tools and strategies that have strengthened our relationships with each other and enabled us to have productive conversations about the issues regarding our mother’s care.

"Hi Kathleen. I wanted to let you know that Mom passed away peacefully Monday evening. Sandy, Cary and I were with her for the last few hours.
Before we parted that night I mentioned how wonderful it was for us to be in agreement on all the decisions that had to be made during the last couple of weeks of Mom’s life and Sandy said, “Thanks to Kathleen!” We all agree on that as well.
I’m so grateful to you for helping us restore our relationship. We’re moving forward with love and respect and we feel there is no more fitting way to honor Mom and her love for us.
The longer you wait to resolve a conflict, make personal improvements or have a needed conversation - the harder and more complicated it becomes.
The cost of unresolved conflict is high - don't go it alone.
An experienced mediator will teach you to identify and resolve conflicts for future success.
