On September 29, 2021, Attorney Benjamin T. Ballou, as Probate Commissioner of the Lake County Superior Court, conducted the swearing-in ceremony for VASIA volunteers. The VASIA program, instituted in 2001, is a collaborative effort between the hospital and Lake County Superior Courts. It provides trained and supervised volunteers to serve as court-appointed legal guardians to assist the elderly and incapacitated adults. The volunteers assist the courts with decision-making. VASIA likewise partners with service delivery programs to develop a continuum of elder law advocacy and guardianship services in the Region.
