S05E13 Episode 132 Last Week Tonight with John Oliver
people John Oliver. David Kaye.
Main Segment: Legal guardianship in elder care and what happens when they start to need serious help late in their life. This is where Guardianship comes in. A guardian is court appointed, and provided if the senior in question has no one else to turn to. These guardians are given the legal authority to handle major financial and health decisions in their entirety on behalf of the senior. This can lead to the senior ward having basically less rights than a prisoner.
Other segments: Arkady Babchenko, North Korea & Trump, and a "Royal Expert" exposed.
