The objective of this research is to analyze the application of mediation as an adequate method in the resolution of family conflicts involving elderly people, considering the interests of all those involved, in addition to their needs and available resources to implement whatever is eventually adjusted, especially for their pedagogical character in conflict prevention. The aging process was addressed, so that the elderly and their dilemmas can be better understood. The applied research methodology is a bibliographic, documentary, and qualitative review.
