An Enduring Power of Guardianship is a document wherein you authorise a person of your choice to make personal, lifestyle and treatment decisions, should you become incapable of making those decisions for yourself.
The person you appoint is called your Enduring Guardian.
Your Enduring Guardian can make decisions such as where you live and about the support services and the medical treatment you receive.
Your Enduring Guardian cannot make any decisions relating to your financial, legal and real estate matters.
If you want to ensure that the person of your choice will make those decisions for you, you need to sign an Enduring Power of Guardianship.
If you have conflicts in your family about these matters, and you do not have an Enduring Power of Guardianship, then final decisions about these matters may be dealt by the State Administrative Tribunal.
