An Enduring Power of Attorney gives someone you trust the ability to make decisions on your behalf when you can’t.
Thinking and talking about what would happen if you lost your ability to make your own decisions is uncomfortable. Yet it’s important to consider how much worse the situation would be if you had a stroke, a fatal accident or dementia without having sorted it.
Without an Enduring Power of Attorney, your loved ones, won’t be able to manage your financial or health affairs.
- They won’t be able to access your bank accounts, even if its to pay for your care.
- They won’t be able to maintain your property or investments.
- They won’t be able to say who should take care of you or where you should live.
- They won’t be able to make decisions on crucial health decisions.
Instead, an application to QCAT would need to be made and an administrator and guardian appointed. That person may be someone you wouldn’t have chosen. It’s a lengthy and costly exercise, at a time when decisions need to be made -often at short notice, with minimum stress.
Making an Enduring Power of Attorney doesn’t mean you suddenly give up control. You can choose whether it can be used either before, or only when, you lose mental capacity. You can restrict the power you give to your Attorney’s to make certain decisions.
