An Enduring Guardian is someone you appoint to make lifestyle and health decisions on your behalf, when you don't have the capacity to make them for yourself.
You decide the areas or ‘functions’ that you wish to give to your Enduring Guardian. They may include making decisions such as where you live, what services are provided to you at home, and what medical treatment you receive.
You can revoke the appointment and make another appointment at any time, provided you still have the capacity to make such decisions.
NSW Trustee & Guardian can help you complete your Enduring Guardianship document when you prepare a Will and Power of Attorney with them. You can get started by completing an Appointment of Enduring Guardian form.Download PDF form
