An Appointment of Enduring Guardian is a document by which you appoint and authorise one or more people to manage your welfare and lifestyle affairs if you are unable to do it yourself. Such a document is designed to come into operation after you lose your mental capacity.
A person appointed as your enduring Guardian can make decisions regarding:
- Where you live
- The care you receive
- What medical treatment you receive
Appointing an Enduring Guardian is the best way to ensure that your wishes and best interests are fulfilled.
