ENDURING POWER OF GUARDIANSHIP
An Enduring Power of Guardianship (EPG) is a legal agreement made by choice which enables a person (appointor) to appoint a trusted person as their guardian (appointee) and gives power to the guardian to make personal, lifestyle and treatment decisions. It is very important to know the limits to the enduring guardian’s powers. An enduring guardian cannot make decisions involving the appointor’s finances, property or estate, vote on behalf of the appointor in an election, consent to an adoption, consent to a marriage, consent to sterilisation without SAT approval, make or change a Will without a Supreme Court order. An enduring guardian can decide for the appointor where to live, who to live with, whether to work and matters related to work, provide or refuse consent to any medical, surgical or dental treatment or other health care and decide on education and training.
