Enduring Guardian

One way of planning for your own future is to appoint an enduring guardian. If you lose the capacity to make your own decisions, an enduring guardian can make personal decisions on your behalf, such as where you should live and what medical treatment and services you should receive. An enduring guardian appointed under the NSW legislation can make decisions which will affect the person under guardianship when they are in NSW.

There are legal and formal requirements that must be met in order to ensure that your enduring guardian appointment is valid.

We recommend you consult a solicitor about making an enduring guardian appointment.
