An Enduring Power of Attorney is the single most important document any person should sign in their lifetime It will give someone you trust the ability to manage your affairs in the event that you become ill or incapacitated, if you travel or if you need to delegate authority to carry on your business.
An Appointment of Enduring Guardian is another very important document in which you nominate someone to make health and lifestyle decisions for you if you are no longer able to make those decisions for yourself.
There are many protections you can put in place about how the power of attorney and appointment of enduring guardian can be used, or when it takes effect, for example only if you lose capacity to make decisions for yourself. There are also very specific authorities you can give your attorney to manage your affairs to ensure your future needs are met.
We can also assist you to prepare a “living will”, also known by medical professionals as an Advanced Health Care Directive. This document will set out your wishes for your ongoing health care and is an important record for your treating practitioners.
