Enduring Power of Guardianship
An Enduring Power of Guardianship allows you to appoint a person to make personal and lifestyle decisions on your behalf, such as where you live and with whom, should you ever lose mental capacity.
In some circumstances, your family may be able to make these decisions for you informally, however there may be circumstances where decisions cannot be made informally. If you do not have an Enduring Power of Guardianship in place, your family or friends will have to make an application to the State Administrative Tribunal to be appointed your guardian.
By appointing your own guardian before you lose mental capacity, you can decide who you wish to be your guardian and how you want personal and lifestyle decisions to be made for you.
