On August 17, 2021, Probate Commissioner Ben Ballou presented the “Lake Superior Court Perspective” topic to VASIA volunteers for their training. The Volunteer Advocates for Seniors and Incapacitated Adults (VASIA) program is a collaborative effort between Franciscan Health Hammond and the Lake County Superior Courts. The program provides trained and supervised volunteers to serve as court-appointed limited guardians to assist this vulnerable population and the courts in decision-making regarding these critical needs. Volunteers in the VASIA program complete a 40-hour training program and serve as a limited guardian for one case at a time.
