Easing the burden of decision making. Wouldn’t you want someone you trust to be responsible for your financial interests if you were incapable of looking after matters yourself? If you haven’t appointed a person to undertake that role, someone will be appointed for you. An Enduring Power of Attorney is an important document that you should consider putting in place. Enduring Power of Attorney An Enduring Power of Attorney is a legal document whereby you appoint a person of your choice to manage your assets and financial affairs if you are unable to do so due to illness, an accident or absence. If you were unable to make financial decisions due to a loss of capacity, it is important that a trusted family member or friend has the authority make financial and legal decisions on your behalf. The decisions and duties an attorney may have include the paying of bills, signing of contracts, management of bank accounts and the sale, purchase or leasing of property. Advance Care Directives An Advance Care Directives is a legal document whereby you appoint a person of your choice to manage your quality of life if you are unable to do so due to illness or an accident. The decisions your appointed guardian can make include: • Where you live • What health care you should receive • Other personal services you should receive • Consent for medical and dental treatment This document serves as an advance directive of a person’s wishes or directions concerning treatment given in advance of the event. The direction is made under the Advance Care Directive Act 2013. The Advance Care Directives document allows you to write down the types of medical treatment you do or do not want should you become unable to tell people yourself as the result of being in the terminal phase of an illness or a persistent vegetative state.
