Enduring Guardian

A will or power of attorney are good steps to take to plan ahead. However, the appointment of an Enduring Guardian will ensure important decisions will be taken care of by the person, or people, of your choice in the event that you are unable to make medical and lifestyle decisions on a temporary or permanent basis due to accident or illness.
An Enduring Guardian can help make decisions relating to:
  • Health, medical & lifestyle decisions
  • What medical treatment you receive
  • What services are provided to you at home
Enduring Guardianship only comes into effect in the event you lose capacity. It is only effective during the period of incapacity. Appointing an Enduring Guardian is a good way to prepare for the future, or unforeseen situations.

The team at McNeilly Lawyers can assist you in appointing an Enduring Guardian. We can prepare and explain these documents to help you organise your financial and personal affairs should you lose the ability to manage them yourself. We can help complete this process as quickly as possible. Get in touch today for further information or to schedule an appointment.
