An Enduring Guardianship is a legal document by which you can appoint a trusted person to make lifestyle, health and medical decisions for you with respect to such things as:
- where you live e.g. at home or in a nursing home or a retirement village;
- what sort of health care you receive and from whom, e.g. treating doctor, community health care;
- what other personal services you receive, e.g. home support services; and
- to give consent to medical procedures.
NB An Enduring Guardianship only comes into effect and remains in effect while you are unable to make those decisions for yourself, due to some temporary or permanent incapacity.
We can advise you about whether an Enduring Guardianship is right for you and what terms or conditions might be needed. We can assist you in preparing and signing an effective Enduring Guardianship.
