Enduring Guardianship & Estate Planning

Estate planning is a crucial process that should not be taken for granted. It involves not only the preparation of a Will and a Power of Attorney but also an enduring guardianship. While many people tend to overlook this aspect, it is equally significant as the other two documents mentioned.

Essentially, an enduring guardianship is designed to ensure that your wishes are carried out should you become unable to make decisions or become incapacitated due to unforeseen circumstances. It comes into effect only during the period of incapacity, so it may not always be necessary, but it provides peace of mind for you and your loved ones. Hence, it is advisable to include an enduring guardianship when planning your estate to account for all potential scenarios in the future.

Appoint An Enduring Guardianship

At Hills Solicitors, we can assist you with appointing an enduring guardianship. Electing an enduring guardian can give you peace of mind knowing you will have someone you trust to make decisions on your behalf about your medical treatment and welfare should you become incapacitated.

Along with your family, we can help you decide which functions your enduring guardian has responsibility for. These may include:

  • Deciding where you live
  • Choosing what personal services you receive
  • Providing consent for medical & dental treatment

Points To Consider

When appointing an enduring guardian, it’s important to choose someone who:

  • You would trust to make decisions about your health & welfare if you were unable to do so yourself
  • Is most likely to be available & willing to act as your guardian should the need arise
  • Understands your values and preferences regarding your health & welfare
  • You feel comfortable communicating with about sensitive personal matters

You may also want to consider electing more than one enduring guardian in the event that your first choice is unable to act for you, as well as choose an alternate enduring guardian in case your initial appointee is not willing to continue in the role.
