What is an Enduring Guardianship?

An Enduring Guardianship appoints someone to make personal decisions on your behalf if you lose your capacity to make your own decisions.

The appointment of an Enduring Guardian will only take effect if you lose your capacity.

What decisions can an Enduring Guardian make?

Your Enduring Guardian will be able to make decisions about health care, accommodation and services on your behalf.

However, an Enduring Guardian cannot make decisions about your assets or money. If you want to appoint someone to manage your financial affairs, you may consider making a Power of Attorney.

An Enduring Guardian also cannot make or alter your Will.
