CARETAKING AND COMMUNICATION
Ann served as a live-in caretaker for Mathias’s mother, Mama Claire, in exchange for reduced rent in Mama Claire’s home.
After Mama Claire’s death, Mathias expected Ann to move out of the house, but she refused. Due to the eviction moratorium, he was unable to file a case in court and went to CCR for mediation. The mediator helped the parties shift their focus to what was actually important to both of them.
By the end of the mediation, they agreed that Ann could stay in the house for at least two more months, but that she would start paying rent to Mathias. The mediation helped both parties avoid eviction and move forward with a mutually beneficial solution.
