The legal aspects of guardianships

Host Paul Van Dyck speaks with Vancouver attorney, Jesse Conway about guardianships.

A legal guardian is a person who has the legal authority (and the corresponding duty) to care for the personal and property interests of another person, called a ward. Usually, a person has the status of guardian because the ward is incapable of caring for his or her own interests due to infancy, incapacity, or disability. (From Wikipedia)

Host Cecil Prescod interviews Noah Dundas and Brian Crosby-Payne  about a grass roots effort to save the only warm water therapy pool in the Portland area.

In 1992  Dorothy Torgler, a foundational pillar for Providence Hospital, through a charitable contribution, made possible a therapy pool. It serves elderly and children, people with cerebral palsy and muscular dystrophy, post-surgical patients, individuals with autism, and more. Warm water adaptive exercise programs help alleviate the pain of arthritis and increase range of motion for stroke patients, those recovering from injury, and those who are physically challenged by disabilities.
