What is an Enduring Power of Attorney?
An enduring power of attorney is a document that appoints another person to act on your behalf, even in circumstances where you are unable to act yourself.
You may appoint a power of attorney to act on your behalf for financial matters, such as the operation of your bank accounts and the transfer of your property or for personal matters, like health care and housing. Your attorney’s powers can be as broad or as narrow as you like.
Our team will work with you to ensure your Enduring Power of Attorney is well considered and truly reflective of you and your objectives.

What is an Advanced Health Directive?
Some advanced health care decisions cannot be made by your attorney. They must be made by you with the assistance of your doctor. While your doctor will consult with your attorney, the only way to ensure that your wishes will be carried out is to prepare an Advanced Health Directive with your doctor. The Advanced Health Directive is a series of questions about your health care wishes which you complete with your doctor and then sign in the presence of a solicitor or justice of the peace to confirm your instructions. Importantly this includes the decision to refuse treatment where you suffer from a terminal illness.
Our team will work with you to ensure your Advanced Health Directive is well considered and truly reflective of you and your objectives.
