Appointment of Enduring Guardian

An Enduring Guardian is someone you appoint to make lifestyle and health decisions on your behalf, when you don’t have the capacity to make them for yourself. An Enduring Guardian cannot make financial decisions. A Power of Attorney is required for financial decisions and transactions

You decide the areas or ‘functions’ that you wish to give to your Enduring Guardian. This may include making decisions such as where you live, what services are provided to you at home, and what medical treatment you receive.

You can revoke the appointment and make another appointment at any time, provided you still have the capacity to make such decisions.

Gerber Legal can advise you and prepare your Appointment of Enduring Guardianship when you prepare a Will and Power of Attorney with them.
