Understanding Enduring Guardianship

What is an Enduring Guardianship?

An enduring guardianship is a legal arrangement that allows you to appoint a trusted individual or individuals (known as enduring guardians) to make decisions about your healthcare, accommodation, and lifestyle matters if you become incapacitated and unable to make these decisions for yourself. This can include decisions about medical treatment, living arrangements, and other personal matters

Importance of Enduring Guardianship

Establishing an enduring guardianship ensures that someone you trust will be empowered to make important decisions on your behalf if you are no longer able to do so due to illness, injury, or other circumstances. This can provide peace of mind for you and your loved ones, knowing that your wishes will be respected and your best interests will be protected.

The enduring guardian has legal authority to make decisions for things such as:

1. Healthcare Decisions:

  • Consenting to or refusing medical or dental treatment on behalf of the appointor.
  • Deciding on medical procedures or surgeries.
  • Choosing healthcare providers or treatment facilities for the appointor.
  • Accessing medical records and information necessary for making informed decisions about the appointor’s health.

2. Lifestyle Decisions:

  • Deciding where the appointor will live, including decisions about accommodation arrangements and care facilities.
  • Making decisions about the appointor’s diet, dress, and daily activities.
  • Deciding on participation in social activities and recreational pursuits.

3. Enduring Guardianship Instructions:

  • Following any specific instructions or preferences outlined in the enduring guardianship appointment document, if provided by the appointor.
  • Making decisions in the appointor’s best interests, taking into account the appointor’s values, wishes, and prior expressed preferences.

Our Enduring Guardianship Preparation Process

Initial Consultation

Our enduring guardianship preparation process begins with an initial consultation, where we’ll take the time to understand your preferences, concerns, and objectives.

We’ll work with you to specify the powers and responsibilities of your enduring guardians and address any special considerations.

Documentation and Legal Formalities

Once the guardianship plan is finalised, we’ll prepare the necessary legal documents, including the enduring guardianship appointment and any accompanying instructions or limitations. We’ll ensure that all documentation complies with the relevant laws and regulations in your jurisdiction.
