Enduring Powers of Guardianship
An Enduring Power of Guardianship is a legal document that authorises a person of your choice, to make important personal, lifestyle and treatment decisions on your behalf should you ever become incapable of making such decisions yourself. This person is known as an enduring guardian. An enduring guardian could be authorised to make decisions about things such as where you live, the support services you have access to and the treatment you receive. An enduring guardian can not be authorised to make property or financial decisions on your behalf.
- You can choose a person or persons who will make decisions on your behalf about your personal, lifestyle and treatment matters if you lose the ability to make such decisions yourself
- You can determine the scope of authority that your enduring guardian will have
- You can maintain authority over some aspects of your life while passing on authority for other more complex decisions
- You can protect your interests if you are no longer able to make decisions for yourself
- You can protect your privacy better than if a tribunal was to appoint a guardian for you
- It is less costly than a tribunal appointed guardian.
