Judge Daniel F. Caruso to speak at NAMI Fairfield Feb. 7

NAMI Fairfield, a community organization providing support and education for people affected by mental illness, announced that Judge Daniel Caruso will visit them to discuss how conservatorship can help you and your loved one suffering from mental illness.

The Probate Court becomes involved in the lives of individuals who are incapable of caring for themselves and/or their property. The Court is entrusted with the responsibility of protecting the interests of these individuals. This duty is carried out by the appointment of a conservator, who is authorized by law to provide supervision and who is, in many respects, an agent of the Court. As there are various types of conservatorships, it is recommended that anyone considering a conservatorship contact the Court, as well as competent legal counsel.

Judge Caruso’s presentation will take place 7:30 p.m.-9 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 7 at First Church Congregational, 148 Beach Road in Fairfield.
