Given how many segments they've done now and just how many aspects of the American legal/political system are so unregulated and prone to abuse and fraud, it really doesn't surprise me anymore how they got to be where they are today.

"The rest are.. car dealers and insurance salesmen" WOW... *_WOW._* Fucking EXACTLY the people fit for the bill of manipulating old people and wringing anyone of every cent they _possibly_ can.

A system that is dependent on trusting people to do what they're supposed to do is one that will eventually be corrupted.

If John Oliver does not like tall foxes, he should never see a maned wolf. They look like red foxes on stilts.

I can't understand this. Why are old people this naive? They have been living longer than all of us, they should know how the world works by now. I mean no disrespect, but just because you're old doesn't mean you can just forget about your finances, you're not dead yet. If you don't understand finances, hire a accountant or a lawyer that can handle it for you. This is also why I have little sympathy for people that become destitute due to debt, it's your own fault 99% of the time.

John, have you ever heard or seen of the Maned Wolf? Not a Fox or a Wolf, but looks like a Fox. Also it is tall. Go look up a image of one. ;)

At 65 I would just like to say to all you young people......................."As you walk by remember me, for as you are now so once was I and as I am now so shall you be. So as you walk by remember me." I hope the judges and the so called Guardians get what they gave when they are older. Until then I hope it happens in their dreams night after night.

So bizarre that I'm watching this today. I'm in nursing school and one of my senior patients, we just found out, is being abused (mostly verbally, although food is often withheld) by her granddaughter, who receives money as her caretaker, as well as stealing her food stamps and social security checks. Her caretaker payment is through an agency I'm not sure quite qualifies as guardianship, but nonetheless, it's sadly incredibly common for older adults to be taken advantage of. Thankfully, this woman confided in staff, and legal actions are being taken. So glad to see some attention brought here by John Oliver, and I'd LOVE to see more about how to properly care for some of our most vulnerable!
PaulMcIcedTea (4 дня назад)
Fuck Alvin, marry Simon and kill Theodore. Obviously.
Kathy LJ (4 дня назад)
This is great! Thank you for putting it together. Please do another segment about the abusive courts who are openly violating the disabled and elderly in their quest to put them under guardianship. Denton County Probate Court in Texas would be the first one I'd recommend being investigated! Judge King calming stating protected persons have less rights than prisoners is exactly how Texas Judges are acting. This is a gross violation of their rights... and Judge King... well why is this man a judge? How can he preside over cases without bias when he's already showing bias and a blatant disregard for our Constitution?
Harry Boggs (4 дня назад)
Well, there's more than one "caregiver's bill of rights" but no state or local government entity is obliged to it. Check out what Trump signed in January (the RAISE Act) and let us know if you think it is enough to make a difference---or if it just more bureaucratic banter (my take: it is!). Here's something for in-home caregivers: https://caregiver.com/articles/caregivers-bill-of-rights/
Harry Boggs (4 дня назад)
Oh, some early proponents to RAISE wanted the feds to work out a deal through one of their agencies to actually PAY family caregivers CASH! Thoughts?

PLEASE KEEP THIS IN THE MEDIA!! SHARE THIS VIDEO. This nightmare happened to my family! A court appointment guardian ruined my grandparents lives! They put them in an abusive home, while the guardians were left off the hook the owners of the assisted living facility were finally arrested for their crimes, horrible people!! First the husband then the wife, arrested for ABUSE OF THE ELDERLY. The negligence of ALL THREE of my grandparents "court appointed guardians" left them at the hands of the abusers while they drained all their money and sold all their belongings and refused to let family near them! https://www.palmbeachpost.com/news/crime--law/breaking-wife-assisted-living-home-owner-charged-with-elder-abuse/eCnVGHRxS3qgVEUb1mUkAN/ https://www.mypalmbeachpost.com/news/breaking-news/assisted-living-owner-charged-with-elder-abuse-sisters-tried-sound-alarm/X4BkTTKJP191ZcakJufB9N/

Guardians also gain total control of those with disabilities with many people who get put in group homes, institutions, and nursing homes with no way of them getting out because the guardian and the 'team'(a group home worker, social worker, sheltered workshop worker, and other workers)use their childhoods and any minor mistake they make against them and make it next to impossible for them to get out of them, even after showing that they can be independent in the community. That needs to be looked at in addition to other issues that come up with group homes, institutions, and nursing homes.

Dose of Reality: while it would be wonderful if everyone could remain physically and mentally able all their life, it is all too possible for someone you care about (or yourself) to require a caregiver and someone to manage things for them when they no longer can do so for themselves. My grandmother had Alzheimer's and did not understand this. It was tragic and awful seeing a smart, strong-minded woman become unable to care for her most basic needs and unable to remember and think for herself, and yet unaware this was happening, had happened to her. I watched her slip away by inches each day for years before she passed away. I wish I had taken good advice and appointed a trustee rather than to try to do it myself, because by the time I really understood that, it was too late, emotionally, mentally, physically, financially. You do not want someone you love to have to live like that. You do not want to have to be the one responsible for them, and yet someone must help them. You do not want to end up the way it left me. I did good and I made mistakes in handling this for her, and in dealing with it on my own. I am still getting past that, and it will be seven years this Thanksgiving since she passed away. Being a legal guardian or a primary caregiver is a difficult thing, but it is going to be necessary for an increasing number of us, and many of us will need that care when we get old too. Also, costs for taking care of a loved one, even with insurance, can drain away your life savings easily, thousands of dollars per month. It can ruin an individual or a family. Our health care system and our insurance system are broken in this country, and more and more of us are going to be pushed into poverty because of it.

Thank you for this piece. It's comedic but real. Go to elderdignity.org. My aunt was abducted in Palm Coast, Florida on August 30, 2016 by a guardian and we haven't seen her since--for almost 22 months--while her estate is being spent down. She is being treated like a human trafficking victim. Watch the video on the site. Does she seem incapacitated to you? Kidnapping and isolating her was the only way to silence and control her estate. The guardian is another "April Parks" but we need help prosecuting her at the federal level. Now, they are surcharging my mother almost $500K for made-up things simply to make the family go away. Our only recourse is expensive appeals. It's like the Twilight Zone. If you can get the word out and support our gofundme page, please do. The stress of fighting this is overwhelming. It literally almost killed me due to an autoimmune stress response and 16 days in the hospital. I'm still recovering. We need to save Aunt Lillie before she "suddenly" dies where she is being held and/or they spend all of her money like in most cases. Please help #SaveAuntLillie

Do a show on storage units. It is a horrible system. They can steal all your belongings of a life time if you fall behind with your bills. They can take possession of tens of thousands dollars of your possession and sell it away for just few dollars.
