With an Enduring Powers of Attorney you appoint someone (called your Attorney) to make your financial decisions on your behalf when you are incapable of doing so due to an injury or illness.

• appoint 1 or 2 persons as your Attorney;

• you decide whether they should act jointly or severally;

• make the power immediately effective or only after you have lost your legal capacity; and

• appoint up to 2 alternative Attorneys.

An Enduring Powers of Guardianship is a legal document that authorises a person of your choice, to make important personal decisions on your behalf should you ever lose the ability to make these decisions yourself. Your guardian could be authorised to make decisions about things such as where you live, what education and training you receive and who you associate with.

• appoint 1 or 2 persons as your Guardian;

• you decide whether they should act jointly or severally; and

• appoint up to 2 alternative Guardians.

An Advance Health Directive allows you to plan what medical treatment or health care you would like in the event that you cannot make decisions for yourself. You might feel strongly about whether or not you want to receive life-sustaining measures to prolong your life, or decide to specify that you would like life-sustaining measures withheld or withdrawn in certain situations, such as if you were to have:

• a terminal illness for which there is no known cure nor chance of you recovering;

• severe and irreversible brain damage so that you are unable to communicate; and

• an illness or injury so severe that there is no reasonable prospect that you will recover.
