For adult children, obtaining quality long-term care for an aging parent is something to take very seriously, something that warrants significant time and attention. Not all nursing care facilities provide the level of care that they are expected to provide, particularly given the ever-increasing costs of care. When seeking admission of an elderly parent for care, more and more adult children are coming across agreements which require disputes to be resolved not in court but in some form of alternative dispute resolution, typically private arbitration.
Arbitration is a form of alternative dispute resolution which involves the use of a neutral arbitrator to review the evidence and render a decision which is legally binding for both parties. Arbitration can be used to resolve a variety of disputes, including construction disputes, family law disputes, and disputes between consumers and businesses.
