As a conservator of estate and person, we strive to work with the conserved individual to meet the mandate of the Connecticut Probate Courts, which is to allow for a person to live in the least restrictive setting possible. I currently serve as conservator for over 40 individuals, with a wide range of living situations (from individual living, group homes, assisted living facilities to nursing homes) and functioning levels.
